He wasn't immediately available for comment, but Sadiel Ramon Martinez apparently really, really hates police.
The 28-year-old not only crashed into a Miami-Dade memorial for fallen officers, he punched a living one in the face before being shot with a stun gun and taken into custody, police say.
Martinez was driving a red Hyundai inside Tropical Park just before 2 a.m. when he was involved in "several" hit-and-runs, said police spokesman Javier Baez. His spree continued when Martinez reportedly rammed the car through the gates of the Police Officers Assistance Trust Law Enforcement Memorial, then drove in circles inside the memorial, crashing into its granite walls, damaging pavers, and leaving skidmarks throughout.
But Martinez still wasn't finished. According to the traffic crash report, he drove back out of the memorial and crashed into yet another vehicle in the park, finally coming to a stop. He was treated by a responding Miami Dade Fire Rescue unit and medically cleared, but didn't go easily: he then punched investigating officer Ryan Cowart in the nose, getting tasered as a result, the report said.
"It appears he might have been under the influence," said Baez, "but we're still waiting for the results."
Martinez was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence.
