Undercover cops fight each other in Detroit drug bust

Officers from the city's 11th Precinct ordered their colleagues from the 12th Precinct on to the ground without realizing who they were it is reported

Craig explained the conflict between two officers stemmed from the execution of a search warrant on a suspected drug house last Thursday on the city's east side. "In fact, I'd have to tell you it's probably one of the most disappointing things I've experienced in my entire four-year career", Craig said in a November 13 briefing.

Police Chief James Craig calls it "disappointing" and says it shouldn't have happened, writes Elisha Anderson of the Detroit Free Press.

"This is probably one of the most embarrassing things I've seen in this department since I've been appointed as chief", Craig said during a news conference this afternoon at police headquarters.

Two special operations officers from the 12th precinct were posing as drug dealers as part of the "push off" operation in the Seven Mile area of the city.

After obtaining a search warrant to raid a home in the 19000 block of Andover Street, the undercover unit from the 11 Precinct entered the home, but then a separate team of cops from the 12 Precinct stormed the location before the home could be secured, WDIV reports.

During the interaction between the four cops, who had no idea their actions would spark a full-blown confrontation, other members of the 11th precinct were carrying out a drugs raid on a property in Andover, resulting in officers from the precincts ending up fighting with one another.

But instead of fighting crime, the undercover officers fought each other as a brawl erupted.

Sources told FOX 2 that guns were drawn and punches thrown during the fight, with one officer treated in hospital for undisclosed injuries.

Two dozen officers were involved in the incident, according to WXYZ.

The incident was reported to officials in the Detroit Police Department, as well as internal affairs.

Now each individual officer is under investigation as the department tries to figure out just what went wrong.

"One officer grabbed another. and put him in what is described to me as a headlock, and then there was a subsequent punch by the same officer as that officer was breaking away".

"You've gotta have communication", the resident told Fox2 Detroit. "I don't understand that happened about that - communicate".
