VIDEO: Man Disarms Deputy, Beats Her And Partner With Weapon, Steals Patrol Car

Jerry York was booked on attempted capital murder charges after attacking Pulaski County deputies.

North Little Rock, AR - Three Pulaski county deputies were hospitalized after a man attacked them in an incident caught on video (video below).

The incident started Dec. 8 when Jerry York, 51, called 911 repeatedly and speaking incoherently.

Deputies contacted him and asked him to stop calling.

"We are not sure if this subject had something wrong mentally or if he was on some sort of narcotics," Lt. Kornas said, according to KLRT. "Immediately when deputies left the scene he started calling 911 again."

When the deputies came back, York took off in his car.

Deputies stopped York and he bit a deputy's hand, according to KLRT.

During the ensuing fight, the deputies tried to deploy a Taser, but it didn't work. The fight was going on for two minutes before York's friend started recording, according to KLRT.

"Jerry, do what they say," the friend could be heard saying in the video. "You're gonna get hurt Jerry if you don't stop."

The deputies could be seen delivering some closed-fist strikes, which appeared to have no noticeable effect, while York punched them.

One of the deputies deployed her baton and York could be seen grabbing it.

Then the video cuts out and when it returns, the deputies were on the ground fighting over the weapon.

York could be seen getting up and striking one of the deputies with the weapon. He then got on top of the second deputy and struck her with the baton.

Then York ran to the driver's seat of the patrol car, locked the deputies out, and took off.

Backup arrived and flattened the tires of the stolen patrol car with a spike strip. York then reportedly rammed the patrol car of a pursuing deputy, according to KLRT.

York was taken into custody and booked on two counts of attempted capital murder, two counts of battery in the first degree, two counts of battery in the second degree, felony theft of property, criminal mischief, and resisting arrest, according to KLRT.

The two deputies who were attacked with the baton, and the deputy who was rammed, were all hospitalized with minor injuries and released.

This whole thing is a damn shame! Those deputies need some real training in defensive tactics. I also feel that once he disarmed them and began to strike them with the baton it was time to use deadly force. Dude should be sleeping eternally right now. SMDH

They always have the ability to become armed when someone who IS armed arrives.

They tried to do their job. MM Quarterbacking can find fault but a post incident analysis by the officers will show them what went wrong.

Before passing judgement on the officers read their department UOF.

I wonder if Jerry was tested for PCP?

It's disappointing to see all of the people talking about how the suspect got away because it was a female officers. Female officers can be just as good as male officers. Guaranteed that two male officers wouldn't have had any more luck in this situation.

The suspect is lucky that he didn't get himself shot!

Jerry gave zero shits about the anti-patriarchy backlash in this country.

Perhaps a bullet or two would have stopped him...

You see this over and over, Officers are unwilling to risk going to jail by defending themselves. My baton went into the fire pit one day after the conviction of the Rodney King officers. That was proof that you could do everything right and still go to prison. . .

This is what I've been saying for several years now, officers are afraid to become the next viral video and be strung up in the court of public opinion, and so they hesitate to use deadly force and someone is going to pay with their life for it.
