Video shows Carlos Martinez, 27, was driving a red car when he was hit by an unmarked silver SUV that disregarded a stop sign, WJBK reported. An officer then gets out of the SUV, orders Martinez to the ground and handcuffs him, video shows.
"All he kept saying was, 'You hit a cop, you hit a cop, you hit a cop,' and at no moment did he say, 'How are you, are you OK?'" Maria Martinez, Carlos Martinez's mother, told WJBK. "No, they just handcuffed him like a criminal."
The undercover officer driving the SUV suffered a broken rib and collarbone, WDIV reported.
Troopers told WJBK that Martinez was released from the hospital and was not charged
