A Tonasket Officer used Arrestling in an arrest the other day against an active assault with a bat suspect . This is one of the agencies that I was telling you about that had no DT of any kind since the academy. Sounds like it was very clean and by the book, no injury to either, and suspect gave up instantly.

It was dark and he could hardly see the subjects on the ground fighting, had several witnesses yelling that the guy on top started it, and still something about a bat. The officer started verbal commands, and the suspect got off the victim, and was approaching the officer, but due to the darkness the officer couldn’t see if he still had any weapons or not so drew his side arm, and gave more commands to get down, the suspect kept coming. As the suspect got into the light, he could see that he no longer had a weapon in his hand, but he was still advancing on the officer, so he brought his gun in close, grabbing the barrel as taught, and stopped kicked the suspect, as the suspect was stumbling backwards, and going down, the officer holstered and advanced on him, placing (I’m not sure which move yet) on the subject, and he started begging to be arrested. Their Chief talked with the officer and he felt by the suspect’s expression that he was totally shocked by the moves that he instantly gave up. When the Chief asked the officer what he thought he would had done if this had happened before he started Arrestling, he stated he had already ran that through his head, and he would had definitely shot the suspect, or been in a wrestling match with his weapon out.
