RED BLUFF, Calif - “Absolutely if it wasn’t for the citizens out there this situation could have turned a lot worse,” said Red Bluff Police Sergeant Bill Williams.

Thursday afternoon seemed like a routine call for Red Bluff police officers.

They were talking to a woman on Pine Street, when her estranged husband 40-year-old Darren Ramsey drove his vehicle straight at the two of them.

Injuring the officer.

“Her baby daddy hit the cop and a telephone pole all at the same time, “ said neighbor Matthew Miller. 

Neighbors Action News Now spoke with say this street is normally calm, but the alleged attempted murder was only the beginning.

“He pushed her out of the way he jumps out tries to grab the officer’s gun and takes off running and my neighbor my buddy actually runs him down and captures him. It was total madness ," said Miller. 

Police were then able to arrest Ramsey, but when we spoke with officers on Friday they say they still can’t believe citizens stepped in to help when they did.

“It was an awesome feeling like you said before the opinions of law enforcement across the nation is a little bit different. “

Adding this special note to those unnamed heroes.

“I’d just like to say to the individuals that helped that officer, thank you so much. We owe you a debt of gratitude that cannot be repaid. And just know that the officers that are out here working every day we do what we do for you," said Sergeant Williams.
