Protests erupted on Wednesday after a video emerged of an off-duty cop pulling his gun on a group of teenagers right before firing it.
According to a press release by the Anaheim, California police, the incident began when the teenagers walked across the officer’s property on Tuesday at 2:40pm. A confrontation ensued and the press release states “a 13-year-old male is alleged to have threatened to shoot the off-duty officer, at which time the officer attempted to detain the male until APD arrived.”
However, multiple videos show there is more to the story. Not only does the off-duty cop hold on to the 13-year old, Christian Dorscht, after he’s asked multiple times to be let go, but Christian insists he confronted the officer after he heard him demand a “c*nt” get off his yard. See for yourself in the videos below:
The 13-year old was arrested for criminal threats and battery and a 15-year-old was arrested for assault and battery. The officer remains unidentified and free of charges.
