Cop Tackles Unruly Beachgoer, from video by Darrell Tate

Spring breaker Darrell Tate caught some dramatic video this weekend on St. Pete beach, as two spring breakers were violently arrested by a cop. The video doesn’t show what initiated the contact by the deputy, but it does show both young men resisting. The officer does not draw a weapon, using only his hands, and is able to subdue both of the suspects. They have both been charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, a felony.

I’m not big into wrestling, but apparently the deputy’s move is called a ‘choke slam’. He’s a big dude. The whole experience must have been scary for the cop, in spite of his size. Don’t fight cops, kids.
