Florida man ambushes Orlando police officers with brick while livestreaming on Facebook

A Florida man used his phone to livestream the moment he grabbed a brick and ambushed Orlando police early Saturday, the second unprovoked attack on city officers in less than a week, authorities said.

William D. McClish, 27, was later identified as the man who attacked two officers while they were standing on the corner of Washington and Magnolia just before 1 a.m., Orlando police said.

McClish appeared to be hiding behind a car, where he picks up a brick before charging at one officer and striking him with the brick, according to the suspect’s Facebook Live video that police released.

“The one (OFFICER) hit by the brick suffered a broken nose,” Krudo said. “The other officer nearly had his left eye gouged out and had his biceps and some fingers bitten.”
