Deputy Johnson's Training Saves Life
Deputy "EJ" Johnson was sitting in his car, working on paperwork, when another car pulled in beside him. In less than 15 seconds, Deputy Johnson was in a deadly force situation as a couple exited the vehicle and the man began to stab the woman repeatedly. Due to their close proximity, Deputy Johnson made the split-second decision to tackle the man. When asked about his actions, Deputy Johnson said "As soon as I processed what was happening, I reacted. Thanks to my training, I was able to stop the man immediately." The woman is recovering from her critical injuries and the man faces charges for assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
