One of the two Willoughby Hills police officers who was shot at a car dealership on September 28, 2017 is back on the job. Police Officers Craig Anderson returned to work after being shot in the left side and left leg.
For as long as Anderson can remember, he's wanted to be a police officer. He's been doing the job for 34 years now.
"I've had a few close calls," said Anderson.
But what happened back in September nearly cost him his life.
"I'm probably more cautious than I was before," added Anderson.
Anderson only had an hour left in his shift when he and fellow officer Cory Planisek were called to Classic BMW for an unruly customer.
Anderson said when they arrived they encountered Timmothy Schmidt. After they discovered Schmidt had warrants, he took off and the two officers chased him.
