HOLLYWOOD (CBSMiami)– A man is behind bars, accused of attempted to murder a Hollywood detective who stopped him for allegedly running a stop sign.

According to the arrest report, Detective Ronald Cannella  stopped a gold Ford Explorer driven by 36-year old Livingston Manners on Tuesday after he had allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign.

Cannella had originally spotted the car parked outside a home in an area he was patrolling due to reports of thefts. The car started accelerating after the man inside spotted the police car, according to the report.

Manners finally stopped at a gas station located at 1011 NW 8th Avenue in Hallandale.

Manners allegedly began shouting at him when the officer asked for his license and registration.

The report then stated Manners got out of his car despite orders by Cannella for him to remain inside so the detective then tried to arrest Manner who allegedly began resisting.

The  detective said he wrestled manners onto his back onto the front driver’s seat of his car but Manners started to hit Cannella’s head, body, and face, according to the report.

Cannella then wrestled him to the ground where Manners allegedly “locked his legs” around him preventing the detective from escaping then grabbed Cannella’s throat and allegedly  strangled him causing Cannella to momentarily lose consciousness, according to the report.

Once back-up officers arrived and stunned Manners using a police taser, they were able to arrest him.

Manners is facing charges for non -premeditated murder, resisting an officer with violence, obstruction of justice without violence, criminal attempt to solicit, and running a stop sign.
