STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma police credit two good Samaritans with protecting an officer.

Stillwater police say the motorcycle officer was called out on a report of a shirtless, painted man acting unusual. The officer says the 20-year-old was waving his arms around and tried to push the officer off his bike.

Police say the officer unsuccessfully tried to subdue the man with a stun gun and that the two fought.

Police say two drivers stopped and helped control the man so he could be handcuffed.
