Suspect Allegedly Tried To Take Officer's Gun

A burglary suspect is charged with trying to wrestle a police officer's gun away from him. Longview police say officer Justin Windham responded to an alarm call last night at Everhart elementary.

The office found 37 year old Mickey Walker in front of the school. When officer Windham tried to make an arrest, he says Walker attempted to remove his gun from the holster and even kicked him in the head several times.

Windham was able to hold onto his gun but Walker fled the scene. He was captured a short time later. Walker allegedly had several stolen items from the school in his possession.
