The badge of a Baltimore police officer deflected a bullet fired by an assailant last night during a struggle in a dark alley, leaving the officer slightly injured and sending police on an intense search for the attacker, authorities said. Officer James Howard was treated last night at Maryland Shock Trauma Center for bruises and minor injuries and released, officials said. The outcome could have been far worse. "He's very lucky," Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris said. "The badge is going in the police museum."

Pity the local police chief trying to stay neutral in an election season. His actions can be construed as an endorsement of a candidate — but then, so can a perceived failure to act. Take the case of Baltimore County Police Chief James W. Johnson. He recently wrote a letter to a council candidate to stop using an image of an official county police badge in his ads, and quickly got blasted by the candidate and his lawyer. Chief Johnson has warned his own officers about not reproducing the badge.

What would you do if, while sitting behind the wheel of your car at a traffic light, you see a man with a handgun in a shoulder holster approach your vehicle, pound his fist against the driver-side window and release a profane tirade? Would you: a. Lower the window and fire back some expletives; b. Look for an emergency route through the busy intersection in front of you; c. Remain calm and ignore the man until he goes away; d. Call the cops as soon as possible? When this happened to him in Harford County last week, Francesco Grasso chose "c" and "d. " Dr. Grasso is a surgeon with a practice in Baltimore, Towson and Bel Air. He was shaken enough by this display of road rage to contact me and to submit his account as a cautionary tale for other drivers.

Some of the images of Baltimore Detective Troy L. Chesley Sr. that flashed on screens above the pulpit made people laugh. In one, he is bare-chested, belly out and wearing white swim trunks. Another shows him as a boy, with a silly grin and eyes as big as grapes. Others shown at his funeral yesterday revealed his serious side. Posing for a portrait as a young police officer, he looked straight into the camera with a stony expression. Later, he stood with chin up, leaning against a patrol car with other members of the Western District.
