A Montgomery Co. deputy sheriff, who was off duty in plain clothes, had stopped at the Shell Station for ice. His pick-up was hooked up to a trailer with his four wheeler loaded and ready to head to the deer lease. His wife waited outside in the truck.
As he returned to the truck two black males approached him and took him to the ground. As they attempted to get his billfold they were kicking him in the head. It was then his wife exited the vehicle and came around to help her husband.
She was armed and discharged several shots at the suspects as they ran for the red Chevrolet truck. The deputy was then able to retrieve his pistol and also fire.
