Another dealer but not much else.

Well whats happened since i last updated nearly a month ago. Not too much. Only one real incident of note.
Two guys on my team spotted a drugs user who they believed was about to score so they watched him. Sure as fire soon a known dealer turns up deal take place. They took the user once the dealer was gone and we were just arriving as the dealers were reaching the end of the road. In plain clothes we blocked the road with our car and i got out pulled out my badge as i approached them. What happened next i wasnt expecting.
I looked into the drivers eyes as i walked towards him with my badge and straight away i realised that he was going to try and drive away from me.
I ran up to his door and tried to open it. Just as i got the door open he got the car in gear and began driving off.
As i was holding onto the door i was dragged about 5 metres along the road to the point where he rammed into the vehicle i had just got out off and my crewmate was in.
I was left about 4 inches from being squashed between the two cars.
Well i had no time to think about that as he was desperately trying to get the car into reverse. I quickly ran round the car and got in on the passenger side, diving across the passenger and grabbing the keys from the ignition.
I had to hold back from hitting the driver with full force for trying to run me over and instead grabbed the passenger, adrenaline still running i picked him off his seat out of the car and threw him on the ground.
He was under arrest as was the driver.
Between them they had nearly £500 on them and about 10 wraps of class A drugs. Nice!!!
That aside it's been quite normal everyday policing. Lots of arrests, lots of meetings but not too much action.
The only other thing of note was arresting another dealer, although he only had one wrap on him, but during the house search we recovered a pistol. Scary!!
