A 20-year-old man from Georgia was arrested last week after he allegedly shot an Atlanta police recruit in the face during a drug-related chase.

The officer who was shot is a 35-year-old graduate from the police academy, as of last November, and was reportedly dispatched Friday night (Jan. 11) to a southwest Atlanta neighborhood to investigate possible drug activity.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Officer Reggie Robinson chased a suspect, Frank Nance, and was shot in the face by Nance moments later. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where he is currently recovering and in stable condition, a police spokesman said.

Nance was booked into the Fulton County Jail and charged with nine criminal counts, including aggravated assault, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, having a gun while committing a crime and cocaine possession.

When cops brought him in to take his mugshot, his face was F*CKED UP! But police wouldn’t say exactly why Nance’s face looked like that.

Maybe he fell? Or got the crap beat out of him? Or both.

What do you think happened to Frank Nance’s face?
