http://www.sacsheriff.com/media/0116_vehicle_stop.cfm...the deputy felt the suspect grab his handgun in an attempt to remove it from its holster. As he fought with the suspect to maintain control of his gun with one hand, and believing he was in imminent danger of death or great bodily injury, the deputy drew a knife from his duty belt with his free hand and stabbed the suspect in the upper body. The suspect stopped fighting at that point...
While the press-release doesn't specify, the way it's written makes it sound like he used a fixed blade ("drew from belt" as opposed to "drew from pocket"). I'm a huge fan of the "off side fixed-blade" for this very reason (I use a push-dagger for this role but the TDI's are great too).
Anyway, good on him...it's just too bad the BG wasn't stopped permanently.
