Cedar Rapids police Officer Garry Idle is STILL out from the job after he was attacked nearly a month ago on Interstate 380.
Idle stopped 27-year-old Derek Robinson of Cedar Rapids, who police were looking for after his supposed involvement in a domestic disturbance in southwest Cedar Rapids earlier that night. Robinson and Idle fought for about 2 minutes before backup arrived.
Idle’s supervisor, Capt. Glen Fox, said Idle tore his ACL and another leg muscle, received a hairline fracture in a leg bone and is still recovering his eyesight. Fox said he hopes to have him back soon. Robinson is facing a felony charge of assault with intent to injure a police officer.
