A 43-year-old man pleaded no contest Monday to ramming his SUV into his girlfriend’s vehicle and a Los Angeles Police Department patrol car, injuring an officer, and was immediately sentenced to five years in prison.
Tommie Davis entered his plea to one felony count each of assault on a peace officer and assault using a car as a deadly weapon, as well as a misdemeanor count of contempt of court, according to Deputy District Attorney Parag Agrawal.
Last June 26, David was parked outside the home of an Inglewood woman who had recently broken up with him. When she went outside with her sister to move their mother’s Ford Fusion, Davis drove after them in his silver 2005 Cadillac Escalade and intentionally crashed into the Fusion, authorities said.
The victims sped away and tried to get the attention of an LAPD patrol officer near the intersection of Centinela Avenue and Bristol Parkway in the Culver City area. Davis then rammed into the mother’s car and the patrol car, sending the patrol vehicle into a spin and a concrete wall.
The LAPD sergeant, who was alone on patrol, suffered some broken bones, police said.
Davis fled the scene and abandoned the battered Escalade, but turned himself in at the LAPD’s Pacific Station the next day.
After charges were filed, Davis violated a protective order by contacting victims in the case, Agrawal said.
