Thomas Lane: One pump?

Speaker 17: Every time this lights up, give it a squeeze.

Thomas Lane: One pump?

Speaker 17: Yep.

Thomas Lane: All right.

Speaker 17: Was he fighting with you guys for a long time?

Thomas Lane: No, I mean, a little bit but not long time. Maybe a minute or two. We were just trying to get him in the squad and then he came out the other end so we were like we’ll just wait.

Speaker 17: A lot of activity prior?

Thomas Lane: It took a bit to get him. I mean we got him out of the car and handcuffed him and were walking him over there, walking across the street. You need me to trade places?

Speaker 17: Yeah.

00:29:28

Thomas Lane: You, guys, need me here still here?

Speaker 17: You‘re good. We’re good. Thank you.

Thomas Lane: Okay.

Speaker 17: There’s bag over-

Thomas Lane: 320 Baker to Able, I’ll be at Park and 36 when you‘re done there. What’s that? Okay.

Speaker 19: I just watch the foot pedal. It’s down there.

00:30:22

Thomas Lane: Oh. That’s fine. That’s good.

Speaker 19: Okay.

00:30:27

Speaker 19: So what happened? More drama at Cup Foods?

Thomas Lane: Cup Foods, yeah. It was just forgery report and that was the guy that they said was the person that had given them a fake bill. We went over there and yeah just…

Speaker 19: Went bananas?

Thomas Lane: Yeah. I mean he was… We were trying to get him out of the car. He kept his hand like this basically, wasn’t showing me his hands so I’m like, “Let me see your other hand.” I gave him couple commands for that. He wouldn’t do it and then he finally did so then, we’re like all right, we’re going to get him out of the car right now because he kept looking for the key. I thought he was going to try and drive off.

Speaker 19: Oh geez.

Thomas Lane: Yep.

Speaker 19: Man. Yeah. We didn’t understand because it was like come to the, so we’re there and the officers. There are like no, no, no and yeah. The crowd was little yeah.

Thomas Lane: Yeah.

Speaker 19: Man, yuck.

Thomas Lane: Not sure if my cohort is coming here. I gave my location. Otherwise, I might just ride with them and help them there.

Speaker 19: Okay. Yeah.

Thomas Lane: Was there big crowd there then?

Speaker 19: Yeah, more inside. We waited… Our new SOPs are to ah, to wait like if I have cooties going on so like captain usually goes in and maybe brings the rookie. It kind of depends and then…

00:31:49

Speaker 19: Yeah. We just waited because it was like…

00:31:54

Speaker 19: Code 2 mouth injury and then as we’re sitting here, I’m like now it says Code 3. I just don’t understand and then we figured out where it was so and then one of your officers was like, “Hey, hey, ding-dongs, you’re at the wrong spot.”

Thomas Lane: I’m not sure if he’s coming here but oh you, guys, still have the roll down.

Speaker 19: Oh yeah, you know.

Thomas Lane: Nice.

Speaker 19: Nothing but the best. Yeah. Yeah, so he crashed in the…

00:32:22

Speaker 19: I wonder what he was on.

Thomas Lane: Not sure but yeah. He seemed very agitated and paranoid.

Speaker 19: That’s a shame.

Thomas Lane: Yeah.

Speaker 19: It seems like if it’s witnessed, the results can be pretty good if they‘re doing CPR right away so that’s good because they get stuff going so quickly and…

Thomas Lane: Yeah.

Speaker 19: But yeah, they need more hands. That’s why.

00:33:25
