Over the weekend, two police officers in White Settlement, Texas, were chasing a suspect who fled on foot after an attempted traffic stop for driving a stolen vehicle.The Texas heat and heavy gear eventually caused one of the officers to slow down. That’s when Jimmy Davis, a former security guard, pulled up. He said it was “the right place at the right time to help an officer.””I said, ‘sir, would you want to ride?’ He goes, ‘yeah, man, let me get in,'” Davis told WFAA.Watch the video above to see Davis step in to help.When the officer catches up, fellow officer Samuel Brown was arresting the suspect.Brown, who was born with one arm, is not only a recent police academy graduate and new hire for the police department. It was his first foot chase and one he’ll likely remember for a long time. Davis said he has no regrets.”I did what I had to do. I would do it again, too, though,” he said. Joshua Taylor Brown, 31, was charged with three felonies following the chase. The stolen vehicle was returned to its owner.
