Injured Officer Returns to Duty

A Richmond Hill police officer injured during a traffic stop earlier this month is back at work. Cpl. Ray Fowler returned to light duty at the police department this week.

On May 6, police say Marvin Johnson ran over Cpl. Fowler. Flower pulled him over for speeding on Harris Trails Road, but, after stopping, Johnson took off, dragging Fowler alongside the car. Johnson then stopped the car and took off on foot.

Fowler suffered from bruised ribs and other minor injuries. Johnson is in jail charged with aggravated assault on a police officer.
