When Katy resident Talal Choukair came upon a policeman wrestling with a suspect in the middle of Clay Road on Feb. 19 — and then watched the car ahead pull around and keep going — he knew he had to step in.
Authorities later would determine the suspect had two loaded pistols on the floorboard of his Corvette. But Choukair didn't know that when he left his toddler son in his car seat, ran up to the officer in distress, and asked how he could help.
