Officer accused of terrorizing citizens, still on force

According to CBS Atlanta 

CLAYTON COUNTY, GA (CBS ATLANTA) –

A Metro Atlanta police officer is accused of being out of control and assaulting the citizens he was sworn to serve and protect.

CBS Atlanta News has obtained more than 500 pages of internal affairs complaints lodged against Clayton County police officer Michael Hobbs in the last five years.

Chief Investigative Reporter Wendy Saltzman found dozens of use-of-force reports brushed aside by Clayton County internal affairs, including claims Hobbs is terrorizing citizens.

One of those citizens is Brian Hoolihan.  Hoolihan passed out in his car along side a road in Clayton County in a diabetic coma back in 2007.  He had a sticker on the window of his car, warning about his life threatening medical condition.

A police report shows Officer Hobbs arrived at the scene and wrongfully assumed Hoolihan was drunk. Hobbs forced himself into the car and struck Hoolihan twice with a closed fist to the face and another blunt elbow blow to his head.

“My face was all beat up, my ribs were either broke or cracked,” said Hoolihan.  “I had black and blue marks on the back of my legs, you can tell it was from the baton. There were, I think, seven stitches above my one eye.”

CBS Atlanta obtained the gruesome pictures of Hoolihan, bloodied and beaten on the side of the road, at the hands of an officer who was supposed to protect him.

“He was out of control,” said Hoolihan.  “The next thing I remember is waking up in the ambulance.”
