It all started as a usual day at the office for a North Carolina deputy. He was attempting to arrest a suspect who they thought was driving under the influence and about to charge with DUI according to a Greensboro DUI attorney.
During their attempt at arresting the man, the suspect attacked the deputy. The suspect eventually got the deputy into a chokehold per a Greensboro attorney at our law firm. Five teenagers saw what was happening and came to the rescue of the deputy. According to a criminal lawyer, they jumped on the man and helped to apprehend him. Our personal injury attorney has been advised that the deputy quite possibly could have lost his life as a result of this incident.
The teenagers were awarded with the Medal of Heroism for their efforts. The group of teenagers is only the second group of citizens to receive the honor in the history of the award. Our lawyers in Greensboro NC applaud the teenagers who jumped in and did the right thing on the behalf of not just the deputy, but for our entire community.
