This amazing body cam video was just released. It shows what a Colorado Deputy came across on what he thought was a routine traffic stop.

Douglas County Deputy Brad Proulx thought he drove up on a vehicle and a driver that needed help. He was wrong.

25 year-old Deyon Marcus Rivas-Maestas is seen clearly attempting to attack the Deputy with an AR-15 'type' assault rifle. This took place near County Line Road and South Santa Fe Drive near Littleton, Colo.

The Deputy was unharmed and did manage to hit the suspect in the arm. The suspect is now in custody.

So, you want to be a police officer. You should watch THIS before you make up your mind.
