    Man shot and killed after taking Deputy's baton and attacking him with it

    Authorities have released the name of a man shot and killed by a deputy after allegedly grabbing the deputy's baton and attacking him with it.
    Kenneth Drinkard, 42, of Jamul, was pronounced dead shortly shortly after shooting, according to medical examiner's investigator James Buckley.
    The deadly encounter took place at 18500 Deer Valley Road in Dulzura at about 3:30 p.m. Thursday, San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Scott Rossall said.
    The incident began when the deputy pulled the victim over on a motorcycle on Deer Valley Road and smelled alcohol on him, Rossall said.
    When the deputy called for assistance from the California Highway Patrol, the man began to yell, then fled on foot, he said.
    After a short foot pursuit, Drinkard got a hold of the deputy's baton during a struggle and ignored commands to drop it, Rossall said. He then attacked the deputy with the baton, and the deputy opened fire, killing him, Rossall said.
    Drinkard's girlfriend showed up after the shooting and was outraged.
    "He was a good dad and just became a grandpa. He would never hurt nobody," she said.
    The deputy has been placed on administrative leave during the investigation.

    What is that? Bullshit answer # 3?

    Seemed like more of a number 13 to me.. "He could have shot him in the leg or shot the baton out of his hand"

    We had a deputy killed several years ago after the suspect was able to get his baton away from him. The suspect beat him to death with the baton.

    That's why if someone takes my baton and doesn't drop it, I am going to shoot.

    Well, now he's a DEAD Dad and a DEAD Grandpa. I'm sure he'll be remembered fondly.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Person presents threat to cop, cop stops threat. Seems pretty simple. Lesson.....don't threaten cops.

    Well that drunken "Gandpa" was a dumb ass, never bring a baton to a gun fight.

    What was the cop supposed to do? He's a cop not a f'ing Piniata.
