A disturbing video showing a Nashville police officer being attacked by bystanders as he attempted to arrest a suspect has surfaced.
The attack on Metropolitan Nashville police officer Matthew Cammarn is the second in two days on Nashville police in the city’s James Cayce public housing development, according to police.
One day earlier, Officer Josh Hausman was stabbed in the hand while patrolling the development.
Cammarn suffered a head injury and was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and released late Tuesday.
‘After he was assaulted and in great pain, he chased down the suspect that had assaulted that woman so I have nothing but admiration for the way they handled themselves,’ Nashville Police Chief Steve Anderson told News Fix.
In the video shot on Tuesday, Cammarn can be seen struggling with Brian Shannon, 22, on the ground of the complex as a crowd gathers around the men.
Cammarn witnessed Shannon allegedly assault a woman and the officer approached the 22-year-old to confront him.
When Cammarn tried to take Shannon into custody, the fight broke out.
