A man accused of intentionally striking a San Diego motorcycle officer with a car in Mira Mesa last year was ordered today to stand
trial on assault and robbery charges.
Moises Correa, 30, is accused in last July’s incident, which occurred
after the unidentified officer stopped a black Chrysler that Correa was
allegedly driving at Black Mountain Road and Westview Parkway.
Police said the Chrysler sped away, and that as the officer gave
chase, the driver pulled to a stop in a traffic lane, then accelerated in
reverse, sending the sedan crashing into the motorcycle.
Following the impact, the motorist allegedly continued backing up,
pushing the downed motorcycle along the street with the officer pinned
underneath it, according to Lt. Andra Brown of the San Diego Police Department.
Correa then allegedly fled on Black Mountain Road, but was arrested
the following day after a standoff with police at a Mira Mesa home.
The officer struck in the alleged attack was treated at a hospital for
minor injuries and released.
According to Correa’s criminal complaint, he has prior convictions for
assault and domestic violence in San Diego County, and a 2011 attempted murder conviction out of Maricopa County, Arizona.
Correa remains held without bail.
