A bystander springs into action after he witnesses a suspect attack a police officer. He took down a man who attacked and attempted to disarm an officer in a parking lot.
It was reported that Provo police responded to a Sam’s Club parking lot for a welfare check on a man who was reportedly walking around and asking people for water. A Provo officer then encountered 34-year-old Emiliano Medina, who police said pointed at the LEO’s firearm before making a gun gesture with his hand and pointing it at his own head.
Police said Medina then reached for the officer’s gun, which led to a struggle between the two. During the struggle, Medina punched the officer in the head and managed to escape.
Bystanders who watched the incident unfold intervened as Medina fled. A man grabbed Medina from behind in a bear hug and slammed him to the ground. Medina is then placed in handcuffs.
Police said Medina was taken to a hospital because he exhibited signs of delirium. A blood test showed that Medina tested positive for methamphetamine.
