Man Headbutts Road

Perth police are now branching out into comedy:

The man became agitated and aggressive when they tried to take him back to their station for a breath test, police said.

During a struggle, a police officer was kicked in the thigh.

“The man was taken to Fremantle Hospital for treatment to facial injuries after he headbutted the bitumen of the road several times,” police said.

Wow. He must have been really “agitated” to want to headbutt the road. Several times. Reminds me of those Scarborough riots when that kid headbutted the squad car window. Kids these days, huh?

He is expected to face Rockingham Magistrates Court today charged with assaulting a police officer, obstructing police and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Why aren’t they also booking him for damaging public property by headbutting the road? Hell, why bother with the small stuff? There’s an unsolved gold theft case still about. He probably did that too.

    Almost like the prisoner ‘shot trying to escape’, right?

    an involuntary headbutt.

    I saw a similar case on the news a few weeks ago, where a guy claimed he’d been assaulted by police and the police claimed he was resisting arrest. Apparently they had to handcuff him because he kept hitting his face against a fence post, and they were compelled to use force to “prevent him causing self-harm”. I couldn’t believe the journalist reported this with a completely straight face and somber tone.

  4. AD Says:

    The architects are responsible for this. In the old days Police Stations used to have stairs for prisoners to fall down.

  5. Orpheus Says:

    Perth police would claim, with a straight face, that a prisoner fell down the stairs even if they had a single-storey police station. Although from what I’ve heard the rest of the Australian police forces aren’t much better.

  6. People have been known to throw themselves out of windows, too…

    I suppose you could do that in a single story copshop.
