Police say an officer in Texas made a split-second decision that likely saved a suspect's life.
Dash cam video shows the tense encounter between Officer Jeff Payne and a driver who refused to pull over.
The man finally stopped in a driveway and appeared to pull out a weapon.
But Officer Payne quickly determined it was a flashlight - not a gun - and ordered his K-9 to take the man down.
Police are praising Payne for subduing the man instead of using deadly force.
