    ... Reported victim picked up on juvenile warrants ...

    Three Baltimore police officers have been suspended after a 17-year-old boy said an unmarked cruiser drove into him as he sat on a dirt bike, the department said.

    The announcement of the move comes as the teenager, an Olympic boxing hopeful, was picked up by police Thursday morning on two outstanding juvenile warrants, police and his attorney confirmed.

    At a news conference at his attorney's office last week, Deon Johnson said he was sitting on a dirt bike talking to friends July 28 after leaving boxing practice when an unmarked police car drove into him, causing several injuries. Johnson was walking on crutches and his right hand was bandaged, and attorney J. Wyndal Gordon said the family intended to sue the Police Department.

    Anthony Guglielmi, the department's chief spokesman, confirmed that police found Johnson "hiding in a couch" at his home and detained him after serving the two warrants. Guglielmi and Gordon declined to specify what charges Johnson was picked up on, noting that juvenile records are private.

    But Gordon said the warrants should have no bearing on Johnson's claims that he was the victim of a police hit-and-run.

    The names of the officers suspended as internal investigators probe the incident were not immediately available, but Guglielmi said they were assigned to the Central District's operations unit. He said the officers have been suspended with pay, which Guglielmi cautioned is customary when such allegations are raised.

    Johnson said at last week's news conference that he was training for the 2012 Olympics and displayed a championship belt from a match between a youth boxing center in Washington and boxers from Northern Ireland.

    in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.

    I believe thats correct! I'm guessing with all the failed attempts to get this kid and that he just happened to be on a dirt bike, they didn't want him to get away. So a little bump with the car would put him down so he can be taken in.
    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    If you can hide "in a couch" how hurt could you be? Getting on a couch while hurt I can see but come on.
