Here is how this one goes down. A deputy responds to a call about a person driving erratically with a child in the car. The deputy fails to get the car to pull over and follows it to a gas station. At the gas station the driver fought with the deputy trying to avoid arrest.
At one point the driver attempted to wrestle the officer's gun away from him. This is when a Good Samaritan intervened.
It isn't your average Joe. Scott Perkins is a Marine who was deployed twice to Iraq. He drew his concealed firearm and told the driver to stop. This caused the driver to run. He was later apprehended.
Deputy Dorris credits Perkins with saving his life. In a time when so many people in the country have a negative view of law enforcement, the Bastrop county sheriff's office is feeling very grateful for this one citizen who did the right thing in stepping and helping.
