Texas Officer Beaten During Traffic Stop
A police officer in McKinney, Texas, was injured during a brutal attack by a motorist during a traffic stop and the incident was captured on videotape, according to Local 6 News.
Officer Russell May's dash camera was rolling when he responded to a disturbance call in a McKinney neighborhood.
Local 6 News aired videotape of May approaching the passenger side of a car and asking the people inside to get out.
A man, who police identified as Joshua Jones, was then shown jumping out of the vehicle and attacking the officer for no apparent reason.
"When he hit me I figured he was going to take off and run," May said. "That's what a lot of them do."
The videotaped beating continued for several minutes.
"I realized this is for keeps and he really wants to inflict some harm if not try and kill me," May said.
A Good Samaritan stepped in and helped the injured officer as witnesses called 911 for help.
May suffered minor injuries in the attack.
Jones was jailed on charges of assault on an officer.
