In the video, a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy identified as Brad Proulx can be seen near an SUV that was on the side of the road.

The sheriff’s office reportedly said Proulx pulled over to help.

But as he made his way around the vehicle, driver Deyon Marcus Rivas-Maestas got out with a weapon, and allegedly attacked.
