N.C. Deputy Saves Kidnap Victim Locked in Car Trunk
February 02, 2011
It was three hours past his normal shift when Tommy Butler saw a 2009 Hyundai Sonata run a stop sign.
"I really just thought it was a going to be another stop, but then I starting getting a feeling that I needed to stop this car as quickly as possible," the deputy sheriff said.
Lt. Butler of the Scotland County (N.C.) Sheriff's Department was unaware that the driver of the Hyundai, Brandon McMillan, and his pregnant girlfriend Angela Crystal Hartley, had kidnapped a customer at a convenience store in Laurinburg. But he had a gut feeling.
"Something just said, 'Get this car stopped.' And I reckon it was the Lord speaking to me," Butler said.

Good job Deputy Butler! Every officer should learn to pay attention to that gut feeling, sixth sense, still, small voice, or whatever you want to call it. It could save your life or that of another person. I speak from several personal experiences.
