First and foremost, We have tried getting information on this scene. 

RPD told us they are not able to release information.
So we can only tell you what information that has been provided to us. 

Earlier today the RPD were working a scene on 12th ave near Woodruff. 

A vehicle was half way on the curb, and several officers were investigating. 

RPD would not release any information to us about this scene. 

Sources told us a man was passed out behind the wheel of the vehicle. 

Police arrived on scene and located a large amount of drugs, money and a firearm. 

Sources told us that the man was wanted on a possible murder charge, hit an officer and tried to break the squad car windows out. 

We obviously can not confirm this.  Admin Will did witness the subject attempting to kick out the window. But police haven’t confirmed the warrant, and police haven’t confirmed the attack on the officer. 

But we can confirm police had 1 person in cuffs, and there was a large amount of drugs that were on scene that police were processing for evidence. 

RPD said they can not provide any information, so do not expect any updates. 

Correction/Update: RPD is saying no one was arrested. The Rockford Police gave us this statement on this incident: To my knowledge we have not made an arrest regarding this incident, for Murder or any other charge; I don’t have any information about a gun, drugs, or large amount of money. If any of that information is accurate then we will release it when it is appropriate to do so.”
