He Pulled His What? Where?

Upper Darby cop fires on a motorist who tried to run him over.

From the comments: maria7549 asks
" West Berry & Brockton Rds? Sorry but no such street (West Berry) in Overbrook Park. So where did this happen? Brockton & what again?

That would be "Westbury."

Snarkier than needed but correct. Revolvers have a cylinder. Upper Darby cops, like most these days, carry semi-automatic pistols which use clips.

Actually, semi-auto pistols use magazines, not clips, although the words are sometimes, but incorrectly, used interchangeably.

I stand corrected, and not snarkily.
