The Liquor Store

Posted by: Blue

Two nights ago, we were assigned to a disturbance right out of the station before briefing was complete.

Six minutes later, we were fighting with the suspect in the middle of a crowded liquor store.

We gave him a number of knee strikes aimed at his common peroneal nerves and finally managed to pull his hands from under his body and got him into cuffs.

He was negative for any police involvement other than traffic tickets.  He calmed down and ended up at the tank for the next few hours.

My right knee still hurts.  I missed the common peroneal and drove my knee straight into his hip.

  1. Ouch! Dealing with irritable drunks is no fun! Glad you were able to restrain him without broken bones or worse injury. Funny how some folks are nice as can be sober, but are real pains, literally and figuratively when they're drunk!
