On Wednesday, there was a prisoner transport on I-69 and the ride stopped at a rest area. The Michigan Department of Corrections says 28 year-old Antoine Simmons was being transported for a court appearance. During the ride, he somehow loosened his restraints and when the officer opened the door, he bum rushed her and tried to grab her gun. As he tried to grab the gun, a normal citizen helped the officer regain control of the situation.

It happened near the Lapeer rest area and the Department of Corrections wants to help honor the person who hasn't been named for helping them. If it were me, there would be NO WAY I would want this public. Just knowing I helped would be enough. People seek retribution for anything nowadays.
