He was physically exhausted after a 20 second roll on the ground that didn't involve a weapon or a strike being thrown.  The officer literally didn't have the strength to get himself off the floor.

Physical fitness standards are long overdue in the law enforcement community.  A sign of the times is the fact that the Los Angeles Police Department, long looked to for its high standards, recently hired a nutritionist to help officers make better food choices.  It's a good start, but more needs to be done.

September 11th and the plethora of new law enforcement topics and
concerns that resulted from them. Nonetheless, the idea stayed alive,
