Sep. 4, 2009 — Marianna

Marianna Police Officer Bliss Moreau attempted a traffic stop on Mark Anthony Daniels around 7:20 p.m. Daniels, 31, had already fled a previous stop.

After Moreau blocked Daniels' car, he got out of his cruiser and headed toward Daniels with his weapon drawn. Daniels ignored orders to turn off the Chevy Suburban so Moreau tried to reach through the driver's window to turn off the ignition.

Daniels allegedly said he was not going back to jail and accelerated, banging Moreau's arm against the window frame. Read more
