Man plows car into 3 Phoenix police officers in 'intentional' act, authorities say
Phoenix Police Department released a troubling video on Tuesday showing an alleged intentional attack on three police officers outside a QuickTrip store.
According to a department statement on Facebook, "These officers had just completed a call for service and were standing in the parking lot in front of the store debriefing the incident when the suspect drove his vehicle directly at them attempting to run them over. The suspect vehicle struck two of the officers, collided into a police vehicle and crashed into the QT causing extensive damage."

The suspect was arrested after he "struggled violently" with the officers.
The statement further noted, "The two officers struck by the vehicle sustained serious but not life threatening injuries. The third officer was able to jump out of the way but sustained some injuries during the extended struggle with the suspect."
The suspect, identified as 44-year-old Marc LaQuon Payne, faces multiple attempted first-degree murder charges.
