Corpus Christi Police Officer Michael Love was released from the hospital Wednesday.

The Corpus Christi Police Officers Association posted a photo of Love leaving Christus Spohn Hospital Shoreline at about 5:15 p.m.

Love told U.S. Rep. Michael Cloud during their visit on Monday that he hoped to be home in time to attend Officer Alan McCollum's funeral on Thursday.

He received a pelvic injury during the Friday night traffic stop that injured him and killed McCollum.

"During the incident he ended up pushing a car off of himself to break himself free," Cloud told KRIS 6 News on Tuesday.

He said Love was upbeat on Monday despite being in the hospital.

"Everything I heard about Officer Love was true," he said. "You think you're coming to encourage somebody and he encourages you with his optimistic spirit."
