A bullet-proof vest and a fellow Jacksonville officer might have saved another officers life.
This morning at the bus terminal off Union Street, a 48-year-old man reportedly began trying to stab Officer McMillan in the back. Sergeant Webb pushed the officer out of the way and tazered Randall Bavle. Police found a kitchen knife in the suspect's hand.
Bavle is now in jail, saying he wanted the officer to kill him. McMillan is doing okay.
