A 23-year-old man named Domenick Hoy has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault, among other charges, after he sucker punched a Pittsburgh police officer.
An incident report says a Pittsburg officer was sitting in his parked police cruiser when he noticed Hoy running and screaming. The officer asked Hoy what was wrong and was subsequently punched in the face.
Police say Hoy yelled, “Black Lives Matter,” while resisting arrest.
Hoy will remain in jail until his April 7 preliminary hearing.
Other than a broken nose, the officer did not sustain further injuries.
