Police officers are constantly criticized over how they do their job, likely because people somehow forget just how dangerous that job is. This incident may help serve as a good reminder, though: a police officer was dragged into the woods after stopping to check on a car by three men threatening to kill him, and he was only saved by the heroic action of his K-9 partner.
Deputy Todd Frazier of Long Beach, Mississippi, a K-9 officer, pulled over last Monday night to check on a car when he noticed that the man in the front seat appeared to be passed out and the lights were off.
That is when two men appeared nearby and distracted him as the driver got out and ambushed him. All three men dragged Frazier into the nearby woods.
‘They told him they were going to slit his throat, and they were dragging him toward the woods,’ Chief Deputy Don Bass said according to The Clarion-Ledger.
He said the men then planned on dumping the body after killing him.
When asked if the incident might have something to do with recent gangs stating they would attack any police officers they encountered on sight, Bass said: ‘At this point in time I don’t care.’
Regardless of their motivation, the men were quickly foiled when Frazier managed to unlock the back doors of his squad car using a pop mechanism that he activated on his key chain.
That sent Lucas, Frazier’s police dog, running after his owner and the men.
The dog bit at least one of the attackers before they ran off, jumping into the Town Car Frazier first stopped to inspect and speeding away from the scene.
Frazier suffered a two-and-a-half-inch cut to his forehead from what a doctor believes was a box cutter and multiple other bodily injuries.
Every time an officer gets out of their car to do a stop, their life is at risk. This officer was lucky enough to have a K-9 partner there to save him — talk about man’s best friend!
