Officer Tom Woods was making a routine traffic stop when a man popped out of the trunk, armed with a gun -- and Woods wrestled him to the ground. But Lewiston Police Chief Chris Ankeny says it could have ended badly.
“There have been a lot of events that have been happening with police agencies across the nation in the past few months that have been quite horrific and have shown a propensity of violence against police,” Ankeny says.
Over the past week, six officers were attacked in Texas, Missouri, Florida, Idaho and Michigan. This year alone, 60 officers have been shot and killed -- including 20 in ambushes -- a 67 percent increase over last year.
The eighteenth ambush took place in Texas, where San Antonio detective Benjamin Marconi was shot in the head last Sunday.
