Q: What would the repercussions be for a person to ram their vehicle into a person with a weapon? Details in more info.

Given the situation where you, a normal citizen, sees a person pointing at a cop that is taking covered. The person with the gun does not see you in a vehicle. Are there any repercussions if you were to ram your car into the person with a gun to stop him? Can it be considered self defense?

it wouldn't be self-defense since the gun is not pointed at you.....but it would arguably be Defense of Others.

because you did the right thing doesn't mean you won't be prosecuted or sued civilly.......but my guess is that you would win
