Jim Hale was chatting with his friend, Tammy Arnold, in a park when
he noticed some men eyeing Arnold's motorcycle. Hale greeted the
men, then, unbeknownst even to Arnold, opened his vehicle and
holstered his handgun just in case. The hunch was well founded.
Police say one of the men ran out of a nearby wooded area, stabbed
Hale in the upper back and tried to throw Arnold off the motorcycle.
Hale's adrenaline pumped so hard he didn't realize he'd been
stabbed. He struggled with the larger assailant, then pulled his
handgun as they wrestled on the ground. "Within just a matter of
seconds, truly, I had him on the ground with a gun to his throat and
just held him until police arrived," said Hale.
