Deputy Cernich made traffic stop on a suspected DWI. Two male subjects were in thevehicle, the driver and a passenger in the back seat. As the driver exited the car and was looking for his license, Cernich noticed that the steering column was “punched”. He stepped back from the car to call for assistance. As he did so, the driver pulled a Luger 9mm, reached across his chest and fired one shot from underneath his left arm. The bullet struck Cernich in the upper chest before glancing off his concealed Monarch II soft armor. As the car sped off Cernich returned fire with a round from his duty weapon.
