Deputy "EJ" Johnson was sitting in his car, working on paperwork, when another car pulled in beside him. In less than 15 seconds, Deputy Johnson was in a deadly force situation as a couple exited the vehicle and the man began to stab the woman repeatedly. Due to their close proximity, Deputy Johnson made the split-second decision to tackle the man. When asked about his actions, Deputy Johnson said "As soon as I processed what was happening, I reacted. Thanks to my training, I was able to stop the man immediately." The woman is recovering from her critical injuries and the man faces charges for assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
