Video shows Detroit police SUV plow through screaming protesters

A Detroit police SUV plowed through a group of protesters in a terrifying caught-on-camera showdown — sending several flying off the hood as it accelerated through them.

The officer’s vehicle was surrounded Sunday night by protesters who claim it blocked a peaceful march against police brutality, according to witnesses.

Chanting “No justice, no peace,” some of the protesters appear to climb on the front of the marked cop car — as it suddenly lurches forward, the video shows.

“Oh my God!” one woman screams, as a handful of protesters end up on the hood and in front of the SUV, which has its lights flashing.

The vehicle lurches forward at least three times, sending protesters flying — with one seemingly still on the hood as the SUV finally races away.

“Detroit Police Department drove into 10-12 protesters including myself,” activist Ethan Ketner wrote alongside one of the videos.

“Multiple people are going to the hospital,” he said, condemning a “reckless driver who somehow has a badge.” It was not immediately clear how severe the injuries were.

Another protester, Brendan Scorpio, tweeted, “I got hit by a damn cop car today for walking.”

Detroit police blamed “agitators” for surrounding the SUV, telling the Detroit News that the unidentified officer saved himself after a rear window was “busted out.”

“The officer tried to escape,” the department told the paper.
