A cell phone charger may have saved a California deputy's life.
Investigators say a routine traffic stop turned into a shoot-out in Los Angeles County Monday.
When a female deputy patted the suspect down, she felt a gun in his waistband. That's when investigators say the suspect grabbed the gun and fired at her.
The bullet was deflected by a cell phone charger attached to her belt.
"I've heard, you know of deputies badges stopping round," said Lt. Mike Rosson. "I've heard of a lot of things stopping round but something that small is nothing short of a miracle."
The impact of the bullet bruised the deputy's hip. The male deputy was shot in the hand. The suspect was killed.
