Grandmother Lauded After Coming to Rescue of Police Officer

When she confirmed that the officer indeed needed help, she called the police and jumped on Bennett's back.

The incident occurred just before 8 a.m. on Sunday as Officer Aime, 44, found the 28-year-old suspect, Thomas Bennett, asleep in his auto and allegedly noticed drug paraphernalia in the vehicle.

She rolled down her window to ask if the officer needed help, but she couldn't hear him respond. You don't have time to think about it.

According to police, the incident happened on Harry Dr. off Airline Hwy. south of Tom Dr. just before 8 a.m. Officials said Aime conducted a routine traffic stop, but things became violent.

Bennett also reportedly tried reaching for the officer's gun during the fight but was unsuccessful.

The woman, the officer, and the suspect were all transported to the hospital with minor injuries. Before he could answer, she saw the suspect leap toward the officer. "But then her taking that second step was even bigger and she gave that officer a second chance".

"Instead of turning a blind eye, she got involved", Broome said.
