A K-9 officer is being hailed as a hero after tackling an man who appeared to be pointing a gun at police in Grand Prairie, Texas.
Grand Prairie Police had tried to stop the man on a traffic stop, but he led them to a cul-de-sac where he jumped out of the car and assumed a shooting stance.
Quick recognition from the officer helped him realize the man was holding a knife and a flashlight, not a firearm. The man appeared to be enticing the officer to shoot him, but the dog was released instead.
As you can see in the high intensity video below, the dog had the man down immediately.
What a terrific dog! He is there to serve the public and protect his fellow officers. He certainly did a great job that night!
