To authorize an enhanced penalty of 10 years in prison and a $5,000 fine for taking a law enforcement or corrections officer's gun by force, or injuring an officer in the attempt, which would be added to penalties imposed for the underlying crimes. A fiscal agency bill summary reports a recent incident where a prisoner being taken to court leaped from the transport van, pinned an officer against another vehicle and tried to grab his gun. Under current law, the penalty is the same for knocking a gun out of an officer’s grip and for trying to take the gun.
