To Arkansas, where police are hunting a “Hispanic man in his 30s”. This nasty piece of work has shot police officer David Houser, 50, at a traffic stop.

But hold on! Put the usual suspect down. KXAN in Arkansas has news:

A news release from the department last month gave details of Houser’s account of the events, which included knocking the driver’s gun away and spinning out of harm’s way as the driver fired. He told investigators a bullet grazed across his bullet-resistant vest and deflected off a pen. He was not hurt in the incident.

Police launched a manhunt and tip line looking for the SUV and driver whom Houser described as a Hispanic man in his 30s.

Cook said Monday that the hole in Houser’s left breast pocket of his uniform was self-inflicted.

“The crime scene was staged. The bullet hole was self-inflicted,” Cook said. “He had laid out some different caliber (casings) to make it appear he had exchanged gunfire. He did discharge his service weapon.”

An idiot and a bastard.
