A Detroit police SUV drove through a swarming mob of protesters Sunday night who tried to block the police car and then hung on the hood as the officer drove through the mob to escape down the street. A second police SUV followed. The attack by protesters came as police, who had been escorting the protesters, tried to redirect the Black Lives Matter march away from a busy street. One police car reportedly had its rear window smashed in.
