Police say officer stabbed man

A Tulsa police officer has been placed on restrictive duty after he stabbed a man who tried to grab his gun, officials said. Tulsa police spokesman Leland Ashley said officer Tyler Turnbough attempted to stop a vehicle Saturday afternoon in Tulsa. Ashley said the driver began performing pushups and tried to flee when officers used pepper spray in an attempt to subdue him. The man tried to grab Turnbough's gun and the officer stabbed him five times with a knife, Ashley said. The man's injuries weren't life-threatening and he won't be identified until charged, Ashley said. It's not uncommon for officers to carry knives while on duty, Ashley said.
