A Monterey County, California Sheriff's deputy was stabbed by a suspect with a nail while responding to a call Tuesday.
Deputies responded to the home of Sam Bahri after his mother reported that he was acting aggressively, according to KSBW-TV.
"Sam Bahri asked to shake the deputy's hand, and when the deputy reached out with his right hand to shake, Sam stabbed the deputy on the top of his left hand with a thick 5" nail," a statement from the sheriff's office reads.
Bahri then begin throwing large metal objects at deputies. One of the deputies was hiding behind a recreational vehicle trailer and Sam threw the metal object at him with so much force it pierced the trailer.
The deputies, who feared for their lives, were able to subdue Bahri by deploying a Taser.
Bahri was booked into the Monterey County Jail for attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, battery on a peace officer and resisting arrest.
