DALLAS, TX – Police are there to protect us from the bad guys, but sometimes it’s the police that need protection!
Dallas Police Officer Billy Taylor can speak from experience.
Surveillance cameras outside a homeless shelter captured officer Taylor’s run-in with man believed to be high on drugs.
Officer Taylor was injured in the fight, but it could have been a lot worse, if another homeless man hadn’t of stepped in.
Charles Alexander pulled the man off Taylor, and body slammed him to the ground.
Now, if you can believe it, the Dallas Police Department is recognizing Alexander as a hero!
“That’s my nature. I don’t like violence around me. I had to do something. That’s just the way I am,” said Alexander.
Dallas Police awarded Alexander with a ‘Certificate of Merit’ for his heroic actions.
We bet he can’t wait to frame it and hang it up on his wall.
Oh, that’s right. He can’t. He’s homeless.
