After a young man had struck his girlfriend. As we approached the group, a young girl came running out from an apartment with two large kitchen knives at the ready. She was yelling at the male and swinging the knives in his direction while moving toward him. My partner quickly drew his sidearm which caused the girl’s mother to move in front of him in an effort to block his view of the woman and hinder his ability to use force. I came around the other side and with my TASER X26 was able to incapacitate with a well placed shot. She tried to get up but after a second jolt she complied with all orders and the situation was de-escalated. The whole incident was captured on TASER CAM. The camera not only was great evidence in the criminal case but also helped with almost immediate dismissal of her later complaint of excessive force.
