VIDEO: Illegal Immigrant Opens Fire on Arkansas Officer at Traffic Stop

Newly released dashcam video shows an incident over the weekend in which 29-year-old Luis Cobos-Cenobio—reportedly an illegal immigrant—opened fire on Corporal Brett Thompson of the Washington County (AR) Sheriff's Office.

According to Fox News, Corporal Thompson tried to initiate a traffic stop in Tontitown, located just outside Fayetteville.

The driver refused to stop and the officer reportedly initiated a brief chase. After eventually pulling over, Cobos-Cenobio got out of his vehicle and began shooting at Thompson, officials said.

Thompson quickly returned fire, and Cobos-Cenobio fled the scene.

The gunman was eventually taken into custody in Fayetteville. He has been charged with four counts of attempted capital murder, committing a terroristic act, fleeing, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to police.

Glad the officer made it out of this okay. Prayers are with him and all other officers involved. I'm just glad that political correctness did not get in the way of this. Imagine if our Governor or Police Chief would have said, "Lets call this a shooting and not give name or race of individual involved." In Great Britain that is what's going on. The British public cannot mention radical Muslims without being charged with hate speech. Evil knows no color! We go after evil and if they happen to be any & all races, it's still evil! We no longer hide evil behind a political correctness cloak that protects evil. Call it out!

Thank God The Officer was not killed, and that the alien was captured! He should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!
