Pa. Officer On Desk Duty After Punching Concert Mooner

September 11, 2013  | 

An off-duty Altoona (Pa.) Police officer has been reassigned to restrictive desk duty after he was arrested for punching a man who bared his buttocks at a Kid Rock concert.

Officer Matthew Plummer, 27, was charged with aggravated assault Saturday by Hanover Township Police following his confrontation with the man. Plummer and his wife were riding in a bus, when a man mooned the bus, reports WPXI.

Plummer exited the bus and the two men argued, before the off-duty officer struck the man.

Just a slight over reaction. Even if he was offended he knows better than to move into cop mode while endanering his own family. Why endanger his wife at a location out of his jurisdiction over a non-violent misdemeanor offense? He can report the offense to the proper authority and that is all he has the power to do just like everybody else. He is very lucky the incident did not escalate further.

Nothing to say on this one, Ima Leprechaun said it all for me. I probably would have laughed and given the guy a thumbs up, then called it in on my cellphone.
