Knees on the shoulder or back has been used for decades and ensures the most control over a subject thats RESISTING. Especially one under the influence with possible increased pain tolerance. Yes I would have rolled him on his side but also understand him not wanting to lose what he had. Stop fighting cops i dont know sounds like sound advice over and over but what do I know
