St. Louis County 

A St. Louis man was charged on Sunday for allegedly ramming into a police car and injuring two officers, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Kevin Labriado, 48, was charged with two counts of second-degree assault on a law-enforcement officer and child endangerment. Labriado’s 5-year-old daughter, along with other individuals, was in the car at the time of the encounter.


According to the report, Labriado ran into the back of the squad car around 8:35 p.m. Friday. The two officers who were on patrol thought it was an accident until Labriado hit their vehicle a second time. Labriado then attempted to drive off but hit a fire hydrant. While officers were arresting him, he reportedly yelled, “This is for the black people!”

The Post-Dispatch notes that the officers were not seriously harmed and that they and the passengers of Labriado’s car were treated for minor injuries.

Labriado is currently being held on a $20,000 cash-only bail.
