    A former police officer recalls how he nearly lost his life in the line of duty one evening back in 1970. He was paralyzed from the waist down but didn't let them hold him back from working or helping implement big changes for police officer's training and cars. It's been nearly 44 years since that day Gilbert Smith was ordered to take a drunken suspect found on the road to jail.
