Caught On Tape: Monk Saves Police Officer

 

A Texas monk is being hailed as a hero Wednesday after saving a female police officer's life during a struggle for control of her gun, according to a Local 6 News report.

 

Officials said that the police officer in Linden, Tx., was attempting to arrest a suspect at a grocery store when the man grabbed her gun.

 

Police said Patrick Coughlan, who is a monk, noticed the scuffle between the suspect and officer and raced to the woman's rescue. He grabbed the weapon and ordered the man to the ground at gunpoint.

 

Coughlan said that he didn't even see the gun until he grabbed the suspect.

 

"I realize now that if I would have hesitated even five seconds he would have had control of the gun and shot me and then her," Couglin said.

 

"He meant to shoot her, there's no doubt in my mind," Linden Police Chief Alton McWaters said. "If it wasn't for them, I don't know what would have happened. I don't think it would have turned out very well." Another woman later jumped in and pinned the suspect on the ground until more officers could arrive.

 

Couglin said that he's not looking for praise just doing what the boss (God) told him to do.

 

Both will be awarded for their bravery, McWaters said.
