Frank Lauder Woods is lucky to be alive.

So is the Huntington Beach cop who took the suspected baddie down.

What began as a stolen vehicle report turned into a foot chase and altercation between Woods and the unidentified officer, who managed to cuff the suspect just as he was reaching for the waistband of his pants. Searching Woods afterward, the officer says he found a loaded semi-automatic handgun in the waistband. That wasn't all that was found.

You know how they say you should see the other guy? Here he is: Frank Lauder Woods.
The Huntington Beach Police Department Facebook page reports that just before 1:20 a.m. Wednesday, the officer who was driving near Center Drive and Huntington Village Lane saw a man driving a 1988 blue Toyota Camry in the area and decided to run a routine check. The Camry came up stolen from Midway City. After the Camry pulled into a Huntington Village Lane driveway, the driver got out and started running.

After calling for assistance, the officer gave chase on foot. This prompted the driver to turn around and try to tackle the cop. There was a brief struggle, and then the combatant took off running again. This led to another foot chase and an even more violent struggle.

That's when the man reached for his waistband as the officer managed to handcuff him. Besides the gun, the suspect was also alleged to be carrying narcotics presumed to be methamphetamine and heroin. A ski mask and bolt cutters were found in the stolen Camry.

Police identifed Woods, 34, of Santa Ana, as the driver. He was booked into Huntington Beach's jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, possession of controlled substances, carrying a loaded and concealed weapon, possession of a firearm while committing a felony, resisting a police officer and vehicle theft. 

His bail was increased to $100,000--that's right, increased. Turns out Woods was out on bail for other felony criminal charges at the time of his latest arrest, according to police.

Frank actually has a D.V. case with me, I'm frank's ex fiánce. I live in H.b. its extremly scary knowing how close he was to me. I have a restraining order on him.

Frank L. Woods used to be 330 lbs, it's sad to know that the strong man I feel in love with over 4 yrs ago is weak with temptation of his past demons. Woods not on DOPE IS KIND, LOVING, CARING, compassionate..

I have no clue who that frank woods is that photo! truly trying to understand what happened? Where, when, why? We were a family, team players together. Ill blame him for not having the strength to say no! He promised me never again. frank has served time before for herion! Now I truly resent what methanphetamine has done to him. Hows that song go "DON'T LIKE THE DRUGS, THE DRUGS LIKE ME" I WILL CONTINUE to be positive for frank.

I miss my once best friend, lover, companionship, We were on top had the american dream, property, homes, money, kids, a positive beautiful lady whom stood up to the negativity of others.

Ill be praying to my goddess frank gets the help he seriously needs to stay clean. We miss our dad, lover, we miss the old frank. Plz find your way home and locate the STRONG MAN I Feel in love with..
