SOUTH OGDEN, Utah — Just before midnight on Dec. 31, Olsen and officer Scott Brown were involved in an intense traffic stop involving a known gang member who not only had a warrant out for his arrest, but also had a history of violence and was known for always being armed.

The dangerous encounter was captured on the dash-cam video from Olsen's patrol car parked behind the suspect's vehicle that was carrying five children. It shows the extreme dangers officers sometimes face when dealing with criminals.

Officers got into a fistfight with Scott Todd Sanders, 30, before they were finally able to restrain and arrest him. Afterward, police said they discovered a gun underneath the seat where he had been sitting, as well as drugs and drug paraphernalia.
