Policia e Arkansasit ka postuar pamjet e momentit kur një prej oficerëve të tyre i shpëtoi mrekullisht vdekjes kur një shofer “i çmendur” hapi zjarr pa paralajmërim gjatë një ndalese rutinë.
Agresori Luis Cobos Cenobio hapi zjarr me një pistoletë në Uashington County Cpl., pasi oficeri i policisë Brett Thompson e ndoqi atë pasi kishte shkelur rregullat e qarkullimit.
Sipas policisë, Thompson ndaloi automjetin me dy pasagjerë teksa po udhëtonte poshtë Steele Road, Tontitown. Megjithatë, kur oficeri shkoi për t’iu afruar makinës, shoferi “hapi menjëherë derën dhe filloi të qëllonte me armë.”
