The body cam footage shows the officer trying to keep the man away from the fire trucks so “they can do their job.”

“Put the knife down now,” the officer says.
The officer can then be seen using a Taser to try to de-escalate the situation. The man with the knife falls face-first onto the ground, causing the knife to go through his neck and cut the officer. The footage shows the officer and a nearby fireman trying to turn the man on his back.
