A Kannapolis police officer on the Police Week Bike Trip to Washington, DC took a hard fall this afternoon and had to be taken away by ambulance. Fox 46 Digital Journalist Archith Seshadri is on the trip and reports that Officer Steve Belk was conscious but in considerable pain. Doctors say Belk bruised some ribs and should be able to be sent home. He was one of two officers from the Kannapolis Police Department on the trip. The rest of the group will continue the ride that started in Charlotte on Friday and ends tomorrow 500 miles away in Washington, DC. On Tuesday night, thousands will gather in DC for a candlelight vigil to honor those in law enforcement who were killed in the line of duty.
