Whilst on patrol a Harris County TX Deputy saw a car pull around a stopped school bus. The Deputy tried to pull the vehicle over but it sped away thus leading to a 10 minute high speed chase.
The suspect crashed as he attempted to make a U-turn.
The cops told the errant driver to put his hands out the window. Standard police practice. He put his hands out the window okay but they were holding a pellet gun that he fired at the deputies.
Dumb thing to do, really dumb. One must wonder what thoughts were going through his drug addled brain. Shooting at cops with a pellet gun.
The officers returned fire, only with real guns. As one might expect the bad guy was 10-7, with mileage.
All this wipe did was pass a stopped school bus. A ticket, a stern warning? Not a fatality that didn’t have to happen.
Shooting at cops with a pellet gun is NOT a good idea under any circumstances.
STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP, WEAR YOUR VEST AND TURN ON YOUR CAMERA!!
