Officer Gary Davis was killed in an automobile accident while transporting a prisoner back to the police station at 0300 hours.

He had just arrested the driver, suspected of DUI on I-75 and was turning around through a median when his patrol car was struck by a car driven by a drunk driver. Officer Davis was killed in the accident. His prisoner and the other drunk driver were seriously injured.

The suspect, who has a previous drunk driving conviction, was charged with second degree murder, drunken driving causing death to emergency personnel, failing to use care while passing a stationary emergency vehicle causing death, and drunken driving causing serious injury. On October 6, 2005, the suspect was acquitted of the murder charged but convicted of two misdemeanor charges.

Officer Davis had served with the Bloomfield Township Police Department for 12 years. He is survived by his wife, a Waterford police officer.

I know it's a week after your anniversary Coop, but I haven't been able to find the words to say how much I still miss you. I know that God has a plan and y our was to walk the beat up in heaven, but I still think it was too soon. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you and what a great officer and person you were. You may be gone, but you will never be forgotten.
