Over the weekend, a female CHP officer conducting a traffic stop became terrified for her life after a suspect attacked her on a freeway shoulder in Solano County.
The incident occurred at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, with witnesses reporting that the suspect was reaching for the officer’s pistol when the officer’s two guardians, Joel Jones, 61, and Greg Bunting, 52, came to the aid.
The suspect attacked her, hit her continuously, beat her to the ground, and began kicking her, said Jones, a retired San Francisco County sheriff’s officer and former Drake University linebacker.
Jones and his wife, Analisa, saw the culprit, 49-year-old Gary Coslovich, swerving in and out of traffic on I-80 near Fairfield, and he hit two automobiles at 80 miles per hour, spinning them off.
Jones, the pastor of Crockett’s Spirit of Truth Church Worldwide, elected to follow Coslovich.
As per Jones, Coslovich pulled over to the side of the road after being pulled over, but freaked out when he noticed the CHP officer was a woman.
Coslovich then attacked the officer, based on the Joneses.
He charged towards Coslovich, knocking him off his feet from five feet away.
Annalisa expressed her concern for the cop.
Bunting, a dad of two and a motorcycle technician from Vallejo, described the event as follows- it’s difficult to witness a woman being attacked by a male. To witness that was – there are no words to describe it other than ill.
Bunting was driving by when he noticed the event and pulled over to aid.
Coslovich was restrained by the two until assistance came.
He believes God sends them in locations for a purpose, said Bunting, a former youth minister.
When questioned what they felt of being referred to as heroes, Jones replied: “I’m no hero, I’m a servant. I’m no hero, no more than anybody else.”
They’re not superhumans. However when it comes to- it’s time to pitch in, let’s do it, Bunting concurred.
Coslovich was arrested and accused of assault and violence on a police officer.
The cop, whose identity was not published, was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.
