Police bodycam shows moment Florida deputy is stabbed in neck by suspect

New York Post:

A Florida sheriff’s deputy was stabbed in the neck Sunday by a man who fled from police after he was told he was being committed to a mental health facility.

The dramatic episode was captured on Deputy Charles Williams’ bodycam and released Monday by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

The recording starts with Williams confronting 21-year-old Nicolas Furgason, who had stopped in a wooded area in Lithia.

“Why are you running dude, come on,” Williams says to Furgason who earlier fled from his home after an involuntary mental health evaluation. “Are you scared?” the officer asks, according to the footage.

Furgason says yes. Then when Williams tries to detain him, the 21-year-old can be seen in the video lunging his left arm toward the cop’s neck.
