CRANSTON, R.I. — A man who spent 15 years in prison for killing a Boston police officer is in trouble again for allegedly fleeing a traffic stop in Rhode Island.
Cranston police say 47-year-old Terrell Muhammad was arrested over the weekend after officers staked out his home.
Police chased him through city streets on Friday after he fled a traffic stop after running a stop sign. He allegedly pointed his car at cruisers. Officers eventually broke off pursuit.
Muhammad faces charges including assault on a police officer. He was granted bail at Monday’s arraignment, but was held as a Superior Court violator.
Muhammed was released in May 2009 after serving about half his sentence on a voluntary manslaughter conviction for the 1993 shooting of a Boston officer. It could not be determined if he had a lawyer.
