LEWISTON, Idaho (WFLA) — Police dash cam video recorded a police officer bringing down a man who tried to ambush the officer in Idaho.
The Lewiston police officer pulls over a vehicle driving without a license plate. The car matches the description of a wanted man’s vehicle.
The officer is looking for 22-year-old Jesse Harrell who failed to appear in court for charges of malicious injury to property and driving without privileges.
Instead of Jesse — Harrell’s mother is found driving the car.
When the officer walks behind the vehicle — Jesse Harrell — jumps out of the trunk– armed– and attacks the officer.
Instead of firing his own gun… The police officer wrestles the suspect to the ground. Officials say the suspect had brass knuckles in his pocket.
Jesse Harrell was taken into custody and now faces charges of aggravated assault and resisting arrest.
Harrell’s mother was also arrested for obstructing justice.
