VIDEO: Fla. Suspect Goes Berserk In Squad

An Altamonte Springs (Fla.) Police officer suffered a broken nose after a suspect freaked out in the back of the patrol car following his arrest for disorderly behavior while intoxicated.

Angelo Bocchino, 33, had also resisted arrest on Sunday morning. Bocchino flew into a rage when officers began taking him to jail, reports Fox News Orlando.

Patrol car video shows Bocchino refusing to retract his foot so officers could close the cruiser's rear door. Bocchino began yelling, threatening officers, and bashing his head on the partition. Officers can be seen using drive-stun mode on a TASER to subdue Bocchino, who later tried to kick out the patrol car's partition.

Policies may be more restrictive now but we commonly hog tied those who didn't want to ride normally. I got to using leg cuffs on a routine basis which cuts down on foot pursuits or other foolishness.

I agree. I remember when irrational out of control arrestees had to be hog tied...or foot and hand bound....I read about it and saw it in Movies....hehehe way to go...if they can't behave like a human don't accept their abuse either.....animal behavior calls for animal treatment....

You have taken a very narrow view of the Warren Court and what it heroically stood for. It is unbecoming a fine publication as this one. The election is over Dude. Get over it already.

Officer did what he had to do - forced by offender actions...Today it's prudent to get medical rolling as well...prior to transport. The offender should pay for officer's medical as well...What the heck was he drinking?...Wonder what else showed up in Tox?
