Maintain distance from perp. When siren gets really loud, I backup much further from perp and holster up and point at perp with one hand and hold the other hand up.

If he decides to escape at any point, I let him go.
I was at work when the question was asked, but I like the thoroughness of your answer. Even when you act in self defense, legal questions can be raised, but it's worth the hassle to still be alive to answer those questions. Other than that, you have to ask yourself if it is really worth it.
