I'm glad this chippie took care of business. She even had a person stop and assist her during the struggle, which gave her the opportunity to clear leather.

I am glad one more violent felon is dead.

It helps give employment at funeral homes.

Good job on both the passerby and the officer for relieving the earth of another oxygen thief.

I like their policy of not releasing the officer's name. Heck, our name would be released before we're even home from giving our statement to the detectives.

And good on her for doing what needed to be done. And good on the Good Samaritan for helping.

Passersby are up 2-0 this week! Glad there is still some civilian help out there for officers in need. Good outcome!

Prosecutors said Ossenberg had been on a crime spree before the encounter Wednesday with the CHP officer near Lower Lake.

Ossenberg had stolen a 2010 Toyota Camry from a car lot in Fullerton, fled from state park police in San Luis Obispo County and taken a backpack from a woman on the Golden Gate Bridge before heading to Lake County, where he had vacationed in the past.

Ossenberg had a criminal history that included arrests for violence against peace officers, domestic violence and drug offenses. He also was a registered sex offender and had felony warrants issued for his arrest. Ossenberg was sitting in the stolen car along the side of Highway 29 when a CHP officer stopped to check on the situation. She [the CHP officer] asked him to get out of the car to evaluate whether he was intoxicated. While the officer was running a computer check on Ossenberg, he attacked, choking her and throwing her to the ground.

Ossenberg then jumped on the officer and attempted to remove her gun from its holster. As they struggled, a passerby stopped and ran toward them, distracting Ossenberg and allowing the officer to gain control of the gun.

The officer fired one shot, hitting Ossenberg in the torso.

Great job by the passerby. Goes to show that you can do something and make a difference even if unarmed.

I worked at a place that released our names and pictures even before any incidents... because of the stupid websites and burn wall that was up showing everyone who we are... I hated that.

Good for her. She turned a situation around (granted with invaluable help) and dispatched a threat to her life and ours.

Fine cop, good citizen.

I didn't know homeless people went on vacation.

Here's an attempt CHP disarming caught on camera some years ago. Things can go bad very fast.

I remember when those came out, and I'm still surprised back up fought with the attacker instead making a contact shot. Pretty scary stuff.

I thought being homeless was a perpetual vacation.
