From LA Times 4/17/08:
The officer was struck with the bat as he walked out of his office and fell backward in a daze, Dyer said.
As the officer tried to draw his firearm, the weapon's magazine clattered to the floor, Dyer said.
The student with the bat approached the officer again, the chief said, prompting the officer to reach for a second firearm attached to his ankle.
Glad he had a bug, lucky none the less. Defiantly staying away from magazine disconnects in my carry guns.
