• Illegal Immigrant, Deported Three Times, Runs Over Texas Cop

    A man who allegedly ran over an off-duty Dallas, Texas  officer before being shot by police is an illegal immigrant who has been deported three times in eleven years, immigration officials said.

    The incident occurred when the assailant, Eduardo Gonzalez-Rios, was escorted out of a night club where Sr. Corporal Ed Lujan was working.  Officers escorted Gonzalez-Rios to his vehicle. He then allegedly backed his SUV into one officer and completely ran over Corporal Lujan.

    Witnesses reported that Gonzalez-Rios then backed over Lujan again before other officers fired their weapons at Gonzalez-Rios, striking him in the arm.

    The Greater Dallas National Latino Law Enforcement Organization said Tuesday that Lujan is “in good spirits” in spite of suffering from a broken sternum, nose, ribs, tibia and ankle, and a fractured vertebra and skull.

    Gonzalez-Rios was hospitalized after being shot in the arm and released from the hospital on Tuesday evening to Dallas County jail.

    He has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault against a public servant and is being detained on an immigration hold.
