Caught on video
By Staff Writer
BALTIMORE, Maryland (INTELLIHUB) — James Young, 21, was involved in an altercation with two local police officers Thursday and the whole thing was captured on camera.
“Stop touching me yo,” the man told police.
“Don’t touch me again yo, I’ll knock you straight out.”
“You got ID on you?,” one officer asked.
During the altercation Young, aggravated that police were requesting he show identification, became violent and started swinging at the police full-on, narrowly missing the female cop before landing a knockout blow to a rookie. Soon after backup arrived on scene and Young was taken into custody.
Although it’s important to note that the police instantiated the situation by perusing Young, Young’s actions of trying to strike the female officer are unacceptable.
According to Justin Fenton on Twitter:
“James Young, 21, charged with assault-1st, assaulting law enforcement officer, 2 counts assault-2, resisting arrest, disorderly”
The man filming the video could be heard saying, “Man he busted his shit.”
“He knocked the police out.”
