Although police never know what a “routine” day on the job will bring their way, it’s safe to say that an Oklahoma officer never expected what would unfold after he saw a man screaming and running down the street. The unexpected chain of events would end with both men on top the cop’s car and a photo of the scene that’s gaining traction across the web.
Canadian County Deputy Barrett Storm jumped into action when he saw a man running backward and screaming down a street in El Reno, Oklahoma while being chased. Using a jacket, the man was trying to keep two pit pulls away. Luckily for the man being pursued by the aggressive animals, Deputy Storm was in the right place at the right time and willing to put his own safety on the line.
After parking his patrol car to come to the man’s aid, both the man and officer jumped on the hood of the cruiser to take shelter from the dogs. However, since the ruckus had unfolded near a school, Storm knew his work wasn’t done when the animals lost interest and began to wander away. To ensure no one got hurt, he needed to keep the dogs there until animal control arrived. Using his baton, he banged on the car to keep the pit bulls interested and focused on the two men on the car, and it worked.
