Teenager Levels Gun at Policewoman With Taser
Police footage has captured the moment a gun is leveled at a policewoman’s face as she investigates a routine burglary.
Caught on body cam, the video has now been used to convict the teenager who brandished the weapon at Police Constable Jemma Follows when they unexpectedly encountered each other in a hallway.
The video was released by West Midlands Police in the UK, where few officers carry guns.
In the West Midlands around one in 10 officers are armed with tasers.
In the clip Follows has her taser drawn when the teenager rounds the corner and raises the weapon, but she quickly backs off down the corridor.
Undeterred, she then jumps into a taxi in the hunt for the suspect and his accomplices.
The dramatic footage continues of the night’s events, captured on Nov. 18 2017.
Last week, on Jan. 16, the would-be gunman Reece Lones was jailed for 27 months, according to police.
It turns out he wasn’t carrying a real gun, but a BB gun modified to look like a 9mm semi-automatic pistol.
The footage shows the moment Lones encounters police officers armed with very real guns, pleading “I’m sorry!” as he is hauled away after being spotted on Stourbridge High Street.
