    Former NFL cornerback Dimitri Patterson injured two police officers during a failed escape from a Miami courtroom on Tuesday, according to officials.

    After a family court judge in Miami-Dade ordered Patterson placed under custody, the 34-year-old Miami native took off for the exit, tackling a female officer who was guarding the courtroom doors, authorities told the Daily News.

    The officer hit her head and was taken to a hospital where she was later released. Patterson injured a second officer who also went to the hospital with a minor wrist injury, police said.

    Patterson was detained Tuesday evening and is expected to face charges of battery on a law enforcement officer.

    Imagine how scary it can be for officers to try to corral an NFL player. Patterson is merely a cornerback but Greg Hardy comes to mind in a guy that would likely take three officers to bring down.

    I also remember the case of War Machine Jon Koppenhaver whom kidnapped and mercilessly beat his ex porn star girlfriend Christy Mack and the guy she was seeing. I could only imagine how friggain scary it would've been for those officers if he resisted.

    This guys an idiot though. He was in family court likely for back child support payments and it now turned into assault charges on police officers nonetheless. Where was this dumby going to run to? Just go on the lam for the rest of his life? Criminals are really thankfully dumb. Imagine they were an educated branch of the population...

    And in Florida most times there is a hearing almost immediately after where he is taken into custody where the Child Support Hearing Officer will basically ask what money or valuables he has. If he says he only has a $50 watch and $200 in the bank, she/he will set the purge at an amount close to what he has $200-$250, even if he owes $10,000 in back support.

    That is what used to drive the custodial parents with a deadbeat ex crazy, they wouldn't get paid support for a year and the hearing officer orders a $250 purge for him/her to get out of jail.

    ya I vaguely remember that...it was pretty weird. He just dipped from TC. I guess he was in a hurry to make babies he couldn't afford to raise.

    So Dimitri had his best game running in a Courtroom ?? lmao

    More evidence that today's players , e.g. Patterson E Elliot are characterless thugs

    At least he tackled someone recently, unlike a certain sure HOF CB we used to know.
