Chargers | S. Foley shot by police
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports San Diego Chargers LB Steve Foley was shot near his home early Sunday morning, Sept. 3, following a traffic stop by an off-duty city of Coronado police officer. Foley's injuries are not believed to be life threatening. Early in the morning, the off-duty officer started following a suspected drunk driver in the area of northbound Highway 163 and Highway 52. After stopping at a red light, the off-duty officer pulled beside Foley, identified himself as a police officer, and ordered him to pull over, but Foley drove away. The off-duty officer followed Foley to a cul-de-sac in Poway, where he lives. Foley got out of the car and started walking toward the officer, while his female passenger drove the car alongside him, sheriff's homicide Lt. Dennis Brugos said. The officer identified himself again and then fired a warning shot into the bushes. Foley reached into his pants with his right hand as he approached the officer and the officer fired at the suspect. Foley acknowledged he'd been shot, Brugos said, but continued to move toward the officer, who fired again. Foley then fell to the ground. Brugos said it was unclear whether Foley was armed.
