Crowd attacking Police officers during arrest after routine traffic stop

ST. STEPHEN, SC
Two St. Stephen cops found out too late that not everyone supported their attempted arrest after a routine traffic stop .

Police were trying to arrest Archie Darby. The dashcam video shows him struggling as he resists arrest.

That's when a crowd of about 20 people approached from a nearby apartment complex and crowded around the officers.

The officers, "tried to heed the crowd back, but the crowd wouldn't take commands."

The woman you see near the officers is Darby's girlfriend, Ann Woods.

She pushes and hits Officer Jaime Taylor. Altony Brooks also pushes the officers, then backs up.

It's not over, though. Darby finally frees himself, when Brooks runs into the picture.

"Out of nowhere, he's got his fist kicked back and he's running full blast and hits Taylor."

The blow fractured Officer Taylor's eye socket and required 15 stitches.
