Police accelerated a vehicle multiple times as dozens of protesters surrounded it, according to videos of a incident posted to social media. After each acceleration, protesters could be heard shrieking in shock, pleading for a driver to stop hitting a gas while people were in front of a vehicle & being thrown from its hood.

“Detroit Police Department just ran straight through a bunch of our protesters,” Ethan Ketner, a protester who filmed a scene, wrote on Facebook. “Myself & 10-12 oars were struck by this reckless driver who somehow has a badge.”
