Newly released body camera footage shows the "harrowing" moment a Welsh man armed with a pair of kitchen knives was tased after he charged at police officers.

Gwent Police Department released the footage Tuesday after 36-year-old Tony Buttigieg was sentenced to four years in prison for attempting to stab a police constable on Oct. 2, 2017.

According to a press release, the incident began when officers responded to reports of a man banging on doors in a residential building hallway in the Caerleon area of South Wales.

When officers arrived they spotted Buttigieg, who appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, on a landing holding two large blades.

“[He] was waving the knives around, making threats to harm himself and the officers,” officials said. The officers and Buttigieg were separated by a glass wall and door.

In the video, Gewnt Police Constable Rhydian Jones can be seen and heard unsuccessfully trying to persuade Buttigieg to drop the knives.

Buttigieg is then seen pointing the knives to his stomach, as if to harm himself.

After moments of failed negotiations, Jones opens the door to the landing – and Buttigeg leaps out brandishing the knives.

Jones quickly shut the door again while another officer deployed his Taser.

But Buttigeg continued to struggle against the officers after the Taser failed to incapacitate him.

“Buttigieg began to lash out and attempted to stab PC 188 Rhydian Jones on at least three occasions,” officials said. “He was overpowered by officers and the knives were removed from his possession."

After the incident, the 36-year-old was charged with attempted murder.

On Feb. 19, 2018, Buttigieg plead guilty to an attempted grievous bodily harm charge.

“Gwent Police take incidents like this very seriously,” Det. Chief Inspector Nick Wilkie said in the press release. “Luckily, the outcome wasn’t fatal but nonetheless it was traumatic for all those involved.”

He continued: “The body worn video footage is particularly harrowing to watch and reminds us of the risks officers face every day, when officers are simply carrying out their duty. Our officers showed exceptional professionalism and bravery when confronted by an intoxicated, agitated man in possession of two large knives, taking decisive action and courageously protecting the public from possible harm.”

Gwent is located about 18 miles northeast of Cardiff.

The video answers the question of, "Why don't the police use a taser on a man with a knife?"

If the cop didn't have that door between him and the bad guy, he would have been stabbed (3:25 on the video). Also, I'm surprised the cop wasn't shocked when he was wrestling him to the ground.

What's very notable here is that these UK cops were always of the mind to deescalate the situation. They spoke calmly at first, even at length, to try to get him to put the knives down, and even after the tasing, they were still focused on deescalation. Not once on the entire recording did these cops get belligerent with the guy. The American cop schooling method would have been to have arms pointed at him the entire time while screaming at him orders to drop the knives as though that would have gotten through to him.

And yes, American cops would have shot him instead of tazing.

So do American cops. The difference is that UK videos show the complete encounter. Our videos start when the perp is on the ground and the cops are struggling with him.

"And yes, American cops would have shot him instead of tazing."

True. But, then again, you don't see many of those kinds of encounters in the U.S., do you? Because they'll get shot.

That UK cop almost got killed. The door saved his ass.

Unless the cops are playing Simon Says on him.

I'm sure the cops were intelligent enough to notice the door prior to deliberations, and took it's presence into account.

Those cops handled the situation very professionally. If you want to call them stupid, you are free to do so.

Stupid? No. Reckless? Yes.

My guess is all they had was a taser. So they did the best they could with what they had and they did it professionally.

But it almost got one cop killed -- the perp was charged with attempted murder. I would have shot him.

I expect you would have unloaded your nine-round clip in him.

Way to go, whitey.

And when they ask, "Why did you shoot him nine times?", I would answer, "That's all the bullets I had".

I’d have gone slide lock on him, and if he confronted you, in public, with two knives, trying to repeatedly stab you, I’d expect you to empty your mag in this worthless pile of dog shit. Toughen up, snowflake boy, pussification is for sheep

They were reckless. And if this pile of fecal matter kills anyone after this incident, I’ll blame these officers.

If they shot him dead WHEN THEY WERE JUSTIFIED TO, he could never be another threat to society.
