He drops at least one hand if not both when he reaches the car. The reason the helicopter cut said ‘he looks like a bad dude’ was because he wasn’t following commands of officer and officer thought he was on something. Both officers fire, one tasing, one shooting at the same time. Which means they both recognized a danger at the same time.
