May 2013 – While on duty, (former) Police Officer Robert K. Power testified he urged an intoxicated man to check himself into the shelter, but the man refused and when he said he was going to arrest him, he became belligerent.
“F–k you. Do you want to fight me?” Power quoted the man as saying twice.
At trial, Power testified that he had acted in self defense by pushing the man with his HAND who was challenging him to a fight and who had approached with raised fists.
