A police officer issued a ticket to a truck driver who suddenly lunged at the officer and stabbed him with a screwdriver only to find himself dead moments later after the officer shoots him.
The officer is in the ICU unit of the hospital but is expected to survive, What kind of idiot does it take to risk their lives over a ticket? It makes no sense but that is a mistake we know he will never make again. The assault took place in Sugar Creek, Ohio in the heart of the most populous cities of Amish in America.
Body cam video from a Sugercreek, Ohio, officer shows a truck driver allegedly stab the officer with a screwdriver before being shot dead.
The incident occurred on Wednesday, and the video was released the next day.
Cleveland 19 reports that the officer, Captain Brian Dalton, was allegedly attacked with a screwdriver around 10:00 am.
Dalton came into contact with the suspect, 32-year-old Elijah Collins III, while responding to reports of a truck being driven through lawns.
Dalton handed Collins a citation and told him he would have to appear in municipal court. Collins allegedly responded by grabbing a screwdriver and stabbing Dalton in the neck.
The Daily Mail reports that Dalton shot and killed Collins after being stabbed.
Dalton remains in ICU but his condition is improving.
This is why the police are the most underpaid people in America. In the history of this country, only two jobs were more dangerous. Whaling and defending the Alamo. God bless the men and women who risk their lives for ours.
