Badly Injured Miami-Dade Police Officer Still In Critical Condition

Smashed in the head with a cinderblock on Friday, Miami-Dade detective Carlos Castillo has been in and out of a coma and remains in critical condition in the intensive care unit, doctors said Wednesday.

He suffered such extensive trauma in the attack that doctors listed 14 different injuries to various parts of his body.

Police say Castillo was working undercover on Friday when he was attacked after pulling over Michael Paul Robertson, 33, and his friend, Monica Rene Banks, 25.

Robertson, who was wanted on a warrant, fled after the stop. Castillo handcuffed Banks as officers fanned out to search for Robertson.

Investigators say Robertson threw a cinderblock from the second story of a nearby building, before running downstairs, kicking Castillo and stealing his car. They say he then ran over Castillo’s battered body.

Robertson has been charged with attempted first-degree murder and other related offenses. Banks is charged with accessory after the fact to attempted first-degree murder.
