but hey, thats just me.

Plain and simple. DONT RUN.

but that doesnt change anything thats attempt of murder anyway

you do that to a cop (unintentionally)and your is in jail

not necesary to take a life for a stupid ticket, thats a nonsense

yes they do it to a car, but to a bike?

I watched it a few times and I don't think that it was intentional. I think maybe the cop was trying to road black the road and the bike got there fast than he antisipated!

As far as it being intentional. I am not sure how I feel about that. While I think it is STUPID to run. Is it really worth taking a life for a traffic violation?

.... the opportunity was there to stop him before he caused someone else to have an accident... or before he had an accident that involved other people.

So, in short... good job. The rider has plenty of opportunity to stop, but instead chose to run putting others at risk in addition to himself. The officer, put an end to it.

He turned into the oncoming lane in an attempt to block the motorcycle. The bike hit him.

The plot thickens...heres one news acct of the incident.

Watauga police officer tried to block motorcyclist in chase, report indicates

September 29, 2007

A North Richland Hills accident report on a collision involving a Watauga officer indicates that the officer tried to block a speeding motorcycle instead of taking evasive action, as the Watauga department has previously said.

The collision occurred in Watauga, but North Richland Hills took the report because it involved a Watauga police officer. The North Richland Hills report was released Thursday under the Texas Public Information Act.

Previously, Watauga Police Lt. Philip Adams told the Star-Telegram that the officer involved in the crash 'took all of the evasive action he could, but he couldn't avoid' the collision.

The Aug. 25 collision involving a patrol car and the motorcycle sent the motorcycle driver and his passenger to the hospital. The passenger, a woman, had life-threatening injuries.

Watauga police referred questions to City Attorney Mark Daniel on Friday. Daniel has declined to talk about the collision, saying the information is 'privileged.' He also declined to release police in-car audio and videotapes of the collision, and the city's policy on pursuit and blocking vehicles. The city has appealed the Star-Telegram's request for the information to the Texas attorney general's office. In his letter to the attorney general, Daniel said that revealing the pursuit policy would tell criminals how to avoid capture in Watauga.

Police have said they were chasing the motorcycle driver, Derek Muzquiz of Watauga, because he ran a red light. They have issued a warrant for his arrest in connection with the collision, documents show. The accident report states Muzquiz was cited for evading arrest with a vehicle.

Muzquiz, 25, says the police car caused the collision.

'There's no doubt in my mind he hit us and intended to knock us off,' Muzquiz said Thursday. 'He nearly killed two people.'

His passenger, Cynthia Arredondo, 31, of North Richland Hills spent nearly a month in the hospital and was transferred to a rehab center last week, Muzquiz said. She could not be reached for comment.

The collision

Muzquiz and Arredondo were riding his black and white Suzuki GSXR about 11 p.m. Aug. 25 when a patrol officer tried to pull them over near Denton Highway and Chapman Road, Watauga police have said.

The North Richland Hills accident report states that Muzquiz fled east on Chapman Road 'at a high rate of speed.' About a mile east, as the motorcycle neared Rufe Snow Drive, another officer coming to aid in the pursuit turned west from Rufe Snow Drive onto Chapman Road.

That officer pulled his patrol car into the eastbound lanes of Chapman Road in an attempt to block the motorcycle, the report states. When the oncoming motorcycle swerved into the opposite lane, the police car swerved into the same lane. The impact threw both riders from the motorcycle.

According to a North Richland Hills officer's map of the collision scene, a helmet and shoe were found about 30 feet away from the impact, and a blood pool was 60 feet from the collision.

Witness Regina Allen was eastbound on Chapman Road, waiting at the light at Rufe Snow Drive. The second squad car, which was not using lights or sirens, made a wide turn onto Chapman Road and nearly sideswiped her, Allen said in a telephone interview Thursday.

'Then I heard a crunch and saw a girl fly through the air and land on her head,' Allen said. 'I looked back and saw the motorcycle laying under the front end of the squad car.'

Allen turned into a nearby gas station and parked her car directly in front of where Muzquiz's body landed, she said. Allen said she saw Muzquiz get up, wander a few feet and collapse. She rolled down her car window and asked the officer if he needed help, she said.

'He told me to get the out of there, and that I was supposed to just go home,' she said.

Allen said the officer then got out of his patrol car and screamed expletives while pulling and tugging at the unconscious Muzquiz, yelling, 'You don't know if that girl is going to live.'

Allen said she stayed in her car until Keller paramedics arrived and calmed her down. They advised her to stay at the scene and talk to North Richland Hills police.

The aftermath

In a closed-door session during Tuesday's Watauga City Council meeting, the council discussed the possibility that the incident could lead to litigation.

Muzquiz, who lives less than a mile from the Police Department, said a police officer came to his house about three weeks ago and told him about the warrant issued in connection with the collision. He said the officer told him the department was going to give him a few more weeks to heal from his injuries before arresting him.

The accident report indicates that Muzquiz's driver's license had been revoked or suspended at the time of the collision and that he had no liability insurance.

Muzquiz did not have active warrants in Tarrant County at the time of the collision, court records show. He has been arrested on suspicion of burglary, assault and unlawfully carrying a weapon, with the most recent case in 2005, court records show.

So far, Muzquiz hasn't been arrested in connection with the August collision. He said he believes that the city of Watauga is trying to cover up the patrol officer's mistakes.

'He used his car as a deadly weapon,' Muzquiz said.

Better than killing someones wife, husband, or daughter because he decided to run instead of just pull over for a ticket. The cop doesn't know why someone runs for something so petty and probably assumes half the time that they are hiding something else.

I don't have much sorrow for the guy on the bike. Sucks that it ended that way, but he's alive and hopefully the girl will end up alright. He could have avoided the whole thing by not committing a felony and evading.

I imagine when he ran this came up:

Muzquiz did not have active warrants in Tarrant County at the time of the collision, court records show. He has been arrested on suspicion of burglary, assault and unlawfully carrying a weapon, with the most recent case in 2005, court records show

At that point they have a guy running, with previous assault and weapons charges, so I don't blame the cop one bit.

The runner is just as responsible for the woman's injuries as the PO IMO.

That's pretty much attempted murder, no lights or siren, how was he supposed to know it was a cop and not an idiot on his side of the road?

HE WAS RUNNING! After he ran, it no longer matters. Hes breaking the law...

who cares if joe schmoe doesnt look and turns into his lane.... If he had stopped when they tried to first stop him, he wouldnt have to worry about it.


Why do people take up for the guy?

Maybe not, but he pretty much waved his rights when he ran in the first place. All bets are off.
