Recently Allen County (OH) Deputy Izak “Ike” Ackerman was on patrol in Lima, Ohio. It’s the nightwatch. After the bars close and everyone is home safe it’s pretty quiet…most of the time. Last Tuesday, not so much. Deputy Ackerman saw some fool bust a stop sign. He immediately gave chase and notified the dispatcher.
The car crashed a short time later and the driver took off. Thinking, foolishly, I’ll just run away from this cop and hide out until I can figure out my next step. He didn’t get a chance to do that since Deputy Ackerman was hot on his tail.
The bad guy pulls a pistol from his waist band and shoots the Deputy in the face. Being undeterred, Deputy Ackerman shoots the fleeing felon. He put a few rounds in the “X” ring and the goof is DRT!
Deputy Ackerman was flown to a hospital in Columbus and attended to. He’s currently at home and recovering. Nice shootin’ and in the words of SGT Phil Easterhouse…”Let’s be careful out there.”
BUCKLE UP, TURN ON YOUR CAMNERA, WEAR YOUR VEST, STAY SAFE and deadly if you must.
