‘Judge Dredd’ Artist Brett Ewins Injured In Police Struggle

by
Brett Ewins, a former 2000 AD artist, has been severely injured in a struggle with police.


The 56-year-old was left with serious head injuries following an incident at his Ealing home on Saturday, in which he allegedly stabbed a police officer investigating a noise complaint.

Ealing Gazette reports that the illustrator, who has a history of mental illness, inflicted minor wounds on one of the officers and ended up hospitalised, where he remains in a serious condition.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is investigating the issue.

IPCC Commissioner Deborah Glass had this to say:

“A man is in a serious condition in hospital after a struggle with police officers, during which an officer was also injured.

“While the police are investigating the injury to their officer, it is right that we examine whether the man’s present condition is as a result of his contact with police.”

Ewins is best known for his work on 2000 AD’s most popular strips Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper.
