VIDEO: Dash Cam Captures Brutal Gun Grab Attack on Minnesota Officer

A jury has convicted a 25-year-old Brooklyn Park, MN, man of attacking a police officer.

Lance Carr was found guilty of first-degree assault in connection with a gun grab attack on Nov. 29, 2015.

Squad car video showed jurors in the trial the violent struggle between Carr and Brooklyn Park police officer Sean Hyman, KARE TV.

Police say last November Hyman was responding to a loud noise complaint. When Hyman arrived he talked to Carr and found out there was a felony warrant for his arrest. That's when the attack began.

The two struggled, Carr punched and strangled Hyman for more than three minutes. At one point, Hyman's gun went off, but no one was hurt. The assault happened in a residential area. People nearby heard the struggle and called 911. When other officers arrived they were able to take down Carr and arrest him.

Hyman was taken away on a stretcher.  He missed about two weeks of work while recovering from his injuries.

No backup sent immediately after a Felony warrant was determined to be active? Wonder if the departments' procedures need some revision?

This punk only gets 10 years for beating up an officer. Bring back the hanging days, he should be hung.
