Atlanta Cop Takes A Swing At A Braves Fan

Atlanta Cop Takes A Swing At A Braves Fan

What is with all these out of control cops lately?  Can’t a fan get out an enjoy a few drinks at a sporting event without the fear of having a cop attack them after the game?  In Atlanta, the answer to that question is “NO!”

Sure, this guy may have been incredibly drunk, and probably should have thought once twice before trying to get a picture of himself on a police motorcycle outside Turner Field Saturday night, but all that this officer had to do was tell him to get off and hit him with a fine, but he decided to hit him with a fist instead, before handcuffing the pleading drunk man.

Was his reaction over-the-top?  I thinks so, and apparently I’m not the only one.  This Fulton County officer is now under investigation for his actions.
