Good Samaritan steps up to help deputy after wreck
PENSACOLA, Fla. (WEAR) —
Last week Channel 3 News showed you the video of good Samaritan coming to the aid of a law enforcement officer.
When a driver slammed his truck into an office building, Mitchell Kincaid was jolted from his card game next door.
He went to see if anyone was hurt but quickly realized the driver didn't plan to stay.
"Actually trying to put it in gear, put it in reverse and drive away," Kincaid said. "I climbed in there, ripped the keys out, threw them out and had him get out."
Moments later, Deputy Jeremy Horn arrived and tried to take the driver, Evaris Medina, into custody.
Medino did not only refuse his commands but began scuffling with the deputy. That's when Kincaid decided to lend a hand.
"I went to help him, he was having a hard time," Kincaid said. "Nobody needed to get hurt in a situation. So I did what I did to help alleviate the situation."
Deputy Horn was not hurt and was glad for the assistance.
"It was a pleasant surprise if that makes sense," Deputy Horn said. "It was nice to know he jumped in cause there was a crowd forming up there."
Kincaid said he had to help.
"I wasn't going to be one of those people that pulls out his cell phone and starts recording," Kincaid said.
