Never Give Up..........
The Sacramento Bee
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A motorist who allegedly grabbed for a deputy’s pistol and was stabbed by the officer, who used a knife from his utility belt, is expected to be charged with multiple offenses.
The suspect was identified Friday as Eddie Hilliard, 58, of Herald. He was continuing to receive treatment and is expected to survive, said Sacramento County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Tim Curran.
When he is released from the hospital, he will be booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on suspicion of resisting arrest by means of violence, attempting to take an officer’s firearm, felon in possession of a firearm, possession of stolen property and possession of a switchblade knife.
The incident began at 10:50 p.m. Thursday when the 27-year-old Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputy, a six-year veteran, stopped a car near 44th Street and Perry Avenue in the Fruitridge area. Inside the vehicle was Hilliard, the driver, and two women passengers, ages 53 and 41.
The deputy, who was not identified by the department, asked the driver to step behind the car. Hilliard complied, but while he was behind the car, he attacked the deputy, a sheriff’s department press release states.
As the two struggled, the deputy felt the man grab his handgun in an attempt to remove it from its holster, the release states. Fighting to keep possession of his gun with one hand, the deputy drew a knife from his belt and with his free hand and stabbed his attacker.
Hilliard, wounded in the upper body, stopped fighting and was handcuffed by the male deputy. Paramedics were summoned and took the suspect to UC Davis Medical Center.
The deputy was unhurt. He was placed on paid administrative leave pending investigation of the incident by the sheriff’s department homicide and internal affairs units as well as the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office.
Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies are authorized to carry knives.

Awesome Job!The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government.
That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants.” – Jeff Cooper'

OUTSTANDING!!!! It would be extremely amusing if it turns out that they charged this jackass with Possession of a Switchblade Knife because the Deputy's knife was imbedded in his upper body.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

Good job on the Deputies part! The sad thing is that I'm sure there was some "Dickwad" on his department who though it was overkill to carry a knife on his belt. I'll also bet trhat the same "Dickwad" now has a knife on him!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.

good job by the deputy. I've been thinking about getting some kind of fixed blade knife behind my mag case. Any ideas or suggestions on a knife?'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Excellent work by the deputy!
Admin leave after such an incident is usually just a formality, so hopefully the deputy isn't too worried about that part of it all.
