VIDEO: Mob Of Teens Beat, Pull Gun On Off-Duty Cop For Asking Them To Move Car

An off-duty police officer was assaulted by a group of armed, violent teens at a boat dock on Saturday.

Des Moines, WA – An off-duty police officer was attacked by a group of thugs at a boat launch on Saturday, after the officer asked them to move their vehicles so he could get his boat out of the water (video below).

One of the assailants pulled a gun during the altercation, a witness said during a cell phone video of the incident.

The encounter unfolded at approximately 5 p.m. on June 16 at Redondo Beach, KING reported.

The group refused the off-duty officer’s request that they move their vehicles, but the officer was able to retrieve his boat from the water anyway.

He then headed towards the parking lot, where he and his wife were confronted by a group of teens and young adults, cell phone footage showed.

“Did you touch him, n - - - a?” a barefoot man in a blue sweatshirt screamed as he stormed towards the officer.

“Yeah, I did,” the officer responded. “He got in my face!”

“He’s 16!” a female interjected. “You’re a grown a - - man! Are you stupid?”

“I’m in your face right now,” the arrogant woman challenged. “What are you gonna do?”

Suddenly, the man wearing the blue sweatshirt circled to the officer’s right side and punched him in the head.

The officer attempted to fend off the group, who quickly surrounded him and pushed him onto the hood of a nearby vehicle.

One of the attackers managed to knock the officer to the ground.

Police said that another member of the group left and returned to the fight with a gun, which he pointed at the officer, KIRO reported.

The group then broke up and fled the scene.

In the video, a woman said that one of the individuals had kicked her phone out of her hand as she was recording the incident.

“He pulled a gun on him,” the woman commented to a male witness who came to check on her.

“I saw that,” the man replied.

The off-duty officer, who is an officer from another jurisdiction, sustained minor injuries, KOMO reported.

On Tuesday, Des Moines Police Chief Ken Thomas said that local detectives had identified and arrested three individuals in connection with the assault, according to a City of Des Moines Facebook post.

An 18-year-old male was being held for investigation of second-degree assault involving a firearm, and a second 18-year-old male was charged for fourth-degree assault and third-degree malicious mischief.

A 16-year-old male had also been arrested on a fourth-degree assault charge, Chief Thomas said.

Your jobs are becoming more perilous by the day and it is coming from sources which were thought to be fun places to be......kids baseball and soccer games, boating activities, shopping excursions in a nice mall, a walk in a park, a backyard barbecue, etc.

In this situation any of the people egging on the punks should go to jail. This is mob activity and they should be treated as the dirt they are. The officer did nothing wrong.- whether they knew he was a police officer or not.. they do jail time. Blue lives matter. People need to Stop taking the side of the thugs. God bless our officers.

This could have turned into a tragedy in an instant. This mob mentality that runs through teens and young “adults” is dangerous. They have no control over their emotions and respond to the slightest issue with physical violence. I hope the courts make memorable examples of each one involved in this assault.

Just think, had the officer been carrying he would certainly have shot at least the one who went get a gun from the vehicle. And maybe more. A gang of people attacking you justifies you to shoot.

No it is not all drugs it is BAD PARENTING AND NO PARENTING. And a lot of it is the MSM telling these moronic kids they are entitled to do what ever FOOLISH thing that comes to mind. I HOPE THE COURTS MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF THESE BRATS.

Black trash, white trash............put 'em all in a large fenced off area, with just knives for weapons and tell them where the food stash is. Last one standing gets to live till the next round.

Ghetto Thugs. POS if I ever saw it. Glad they got arrested now will Justice be served, or will they get a slap on the hand, released to do it again?

This is what happens when children grow up with no consequences for their actions and are told that they all win, even if they came in last. I am sick and tired of this...something must be done.

Ok leo, you asked for it. Cats literally have barbed wire on their dicks so that their mate's can't escape them. Ducks have evolved mazelike vaginas to avoid rape.

This is why off duty cops should always have a weapon. Show your badge and pull a gun on those thugs and end this right on the spot.

Typical thug gang.. Sneak around and attack from the back while their girls distract the victim. As for the 16 year old... They will shoot you in a heartbeat and get away with it because they are unable to comprehend what they are doing. At least that is what the judges appear to think! Glad these little punks got arrested. Hopefully the one with the gun can do some serious time.
