Man Tries To Punch Cop

Joseph Pszczola was causing a scene in a popular restaurant and employees flagged down police for help

Memphis, TN – A man was arrested July 18 for trying to punch a Memphis Police officer after causing a disturbance in a popular restaurant.

Joseph Pszczola was yelling at Blues City Café at about 10:30 p.m. when the employees flagged down a police officer for help, according to WREG-TV.

The police arrived and asked Pszczola to leave, but he refused.

The officer then escorted Pszczola out of the restaurant and into the parking lot. A police officer said that Pszczola’s words were slurred and he could smell alcohol on the suspect’s breath, according to WHBQ-TV.

Pszczola continued to scream once outside and pushed an officer and then tried to punch him. Instead, the officer punched Pszczola on the right side of his face, sending the suspect to the ground.

The officer and the suspect were transported to the hospital.

Pszczola was charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication and misdemeanor assault, according to WHBQ.

@Thinblueline: well, one would hardly expect the police to say: "we inflicted that kind of damage because this obnoxious pink haired drunk was mouthing off." This is the kind of case that really shows the need for video and audio recording. Maybe there were some private surveillance cameras trained on the parking lot. We will have to see how well the police allegations are supported as more objective evidence comes in. Lets not forget so soon how this website reported the Sterling Brown case to us before the video became available:

I fought the law and the law won is the meson here 💥 tip for the day don’t get drunk be an obnoxious drunk and jerk. And when the police are called and arrive ...comply with what they ask or tell you what to do. And if you chose to fight your resistance will be met with neutralizing and overwhelming force. Officers don’t get paid to to assaulted, shot or stabbed.
