If you ever wondered why police are so quick to pull weapons on a routine traffic stop this body cam video will explain it. The officer is attacked suddenly when the driver jumps from the car and attacks him with a rifle. Had the driver come out firing this could have ended very differently.
As it is the driver was shot in the arm as the officer fell to the ground, and was arrested after back up arrived. The entire episode is captured on body cam from the Douglas County Sheriff which is near Denver.
