Shocking footage has emerged of an out-of-control man locked in an altercation with a sheriff before gaining control of her gun and firing it at her.
The bullets fired at the officer missed and she luckily escaped the incident without life-threatening injury.
The San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy had responded to calls from a distressed mother in Victorville who pleaded with police to remove her son from her home, shortly before 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Deputy Meagan Forsberg arrived on the scene in the 13000 block of Cabazon Court and attempted to arrest the man but he evaded her and a fight broke out.
In distressing scenes, the man can be seen punching the deputy multiple times in the face and head before a short struggle for her weapon ensues.
