An arrogant teenage boy who must have thought he was Bruce Lee learned the hard way last week why trying to execute a chokehold on a highly trained law enforcement agent is never a good idea.
In a controversial video that was uploaded to Facebook by the unnamed 16-year-old boy’s mother, he could be seen struggling with a Clarksdale, Mississippi, police officer who was trying to apprehend him and place him under arrest.
But when the over-confident young man tried to administer a chokehold on the officer, the cop subsequently lifted him up and body-slammed him right into the ground.
After medical officials showed up to briefly tend to the boy’s wounds, he was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer, according to local station WHBQ.
This story was sad by itself, but what made it tragic was how the boy’s mother and some Internet users chose to respond to it.
“When am done you mf going to no not to f*** with my kids will b at my lawyer office in the morning,” she wrote on Facebook after the incident occurred.
By Monday morning, her post been viewed more than 1 million viewers and had been shared more than 16,000 times. It also received over 7,000 comments, far too many of them were supportive of what she wrote.
