Stabbing attempt is at 3:00..suspect was shot in each leg
CLARENDON COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Dash cam footage from a Clarendon County sheriff's deputy's cruiser caught the moments where the deputy came inches away from being stabbed.
According to Clarendon County Sheriff Randy Garrett, one of his deputies was writing a ticket to the driver he pulled over on Highway 571 around 1:30 p.m. on Monday when 37-year-old
Anthony Pearson approached him. Garrett says Pearson, carrying a backpack and
an open umbrella, stops, puts down his backpack, pulls out a butcher's knife, and lunges toward the deputy. In a split second, the deputy pulls out his
side arm and shoots Pearson in the leg, just missing a potential stab
wound by just moments.
The deputy is okay and was not injured. Pearson, however, was transported to Clarendon Memorial Hospital where he is currently in intensive care.
