Mason was threatening to burn his home down with his family inside before he pulled a steak knife and allegedly stabbed the Police Captain. Investigators say he wouldn't stop his attack even after Captain Hau first used his taser on the suspect.

"Luckily whenever he stabbed me in the head, it bent the blade," says Hau.

"The main thing going through my mind was my wife is going to kill me when I get home," jokes Hau, who reports back to work on Friday.

"That's the job I signed on to do and I'm not doing any good sitting at the house," Hau tells News 9.
