  •  Heh... (9+ / 0-)

    One of my sons who was a strong safety on his college football team was involved in a situation a couple of years ago where a guy with a gun had cranked off a few rounds, and was engaged in a wrestling match with another cop who was trying to disarm him.  Several other cops had guns drawn but could not get a clear shot without hitting the cop who was wrestling with the guy.

    My son holstered his weapon, took of running and hit the guy at shoulder height with a tackle that would have made ESPN's play of the week.  Others who saw it said he was absolutely horizontal when he hit the guy.

    He took quite a bit of ribbing from his fellow officers afterwards...heh...
