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.

    BAIL for the poor, misunderstood cop killer. Deep down he really is a nice person. (Six feet under). Is that deep enough?

    he shot a cop and got voluntary manslaughter charges? and on top of that only serves half his time? wow. how sadly dissapointing. wonder what he'll be back in jail for next time after facing these most recent charges cuz i can almost say for sure that he wont be in jail for long on these charges if he goes to jail at all. either that or he'll get a few years of probation. like that would stop him from doing anything anyway. and if he did point his car at the police cruisers then right there they should have put him out of his misery. piece of shit
