On January 16, 2016, Dylan Dorris , a 23 year-old deputy with the Bastrop County Sheriff department in Texas, responded to a report of a man driving erratically with one of his children in the vehicle.
When officer Dorris attempted to stop the man, who was later identified as Kenton Desean Fryer, he fled in his vehicle to a nearby gas station. Officer Dorris pursued and attempted to arrest Fryer but he resisted and a fight ensued.
According to the Statesman, dispatchers knew there was a struggle but were not able to get a hold of officer Dorris, fearing the worst.
Bastrop County sheriff’s dispatcher Ruth Amy said, “It is very emotional, very emotional. You go into a mode, for a lack of a better term, you go into an emergency mode and you just do what you have to do.”
She continued to say, “I remember thinking stay in the fight. Just keep fighting, keep fighting. Do whatever you can do, just stay alive you need to go home.”
Unfortunately, Doris’s fighting wasn’t enough to save his live; it took the help of one local Marine who had served two tours in Iraq. Scott Perkins was able to stop Fryer from reaching officer Doris’s firearm by pointing his own conceal and carry pistol at Fryer.
During an interview Officer Doris said, “I’m alive today because of him…There are no words to explain it. He’s such an outstanding citizen. He’s here for our country, our community and you really feel the love.”
Kenton Desean Fryer, 32, of Arkansas was arrested on charges of aggravated assault of a public servant, taking an officer’s weapon, evading arrest or detention with a vehicle and driving while under the influence with a child under 15. He is in Bastrop County Jail on $50,000 bail.
