I wear a big-city police badge. A car chase ended at a home, where the drunk driver used her automatic garage door opener to let herself into the garage, then shut the door behind her, but not before several of us managed to run into the garage. Her car doors were locked, the engine was running, so we were breathing the fumes in a closed environment, and it looked like she was going to put the car in gear and do something stupid, like drive her car through the door or wall. I deployed my Spyderco Assist, the model with the carbide glass breaker, and used it for its intended purpose on the front passenger door window. Watch out for flying glass! One of my co-workers got few bits of glass in his forearm. I couldn't unlock the passenger door, because she had the master door lock on her door engaged, so I had to crawl into her car by way of the window, pin her against the driver's seat, and open the driver's door from the inside, at which time other officers pulled her out through the driver's door. That's my tale of high adventure with a Spyderco. This was not this driver's first arrest for DWI.
