Two Police Officers Take Down Suspect As He Goes For His Gun
At the bottom of this article, is a very intense video of two police officers struggling with a suspect as he goes for his gun. Initially during a routine traffic stop, the two officers approach on opposite sides of the vehicle, which has multiple suspects in it. This is an especially tense moment for police, because they have no idea what they will have to deal with. They asked the two suspects in the back seat to exit the car and while one officer searches and handcuff’s one suspect, the other officer attempts to do the same, that’s when it went sideways and the second suspect attempts to take-off.
The second officer manages to get the second suspect onto the ground and after the first officer quickly handcuff’s the first, he then rushes over to help his fellow officer. The suspect in question seems to be a very large young man, in pretty good shape and is quite strong, as it takes both policemen to subdue him. During the struggle one officer says; “He’s got a gun, he’s got a gun, he’s got a gun”. Even though the young man has two policemen on top of him, he still resists and does his utmost to get the gun in his waistband and still struggles to free himself. Eventually, after what seemed like an eternity, one officer finally manages to handcuff the suspect and that’s when they are able to grab the gun the suspect was going for.
This is what police officers have to deal with on a daily basis, had the suspect in question been able to get a hold of his weapon, possibly one, or both officers could have been killed. Luckily for them, this episode ended with no fatalities (theirs or the suspect) and both officers get to go home alive after their shift.
