Elyria (Ohio) Police Department officers detained a man who leapt over a station counter and attacked an officer who was in the process of booking him into jail.
In footage captured by the station's surveillance cameras, Anthony Thomas, 29, of Cleveland can be seen leaping over the counter. He then jumps on the back of Officer William Witt, who is seated at the station's front desk and working at a computer.
Officer Witt struggles with Thomas, who attempts to reach for the officer's gun. The officer eventually controls Thomas, and other officers arrive to take him into custody.
