Nah read the law. You have to intend to hit them in the face. He says he was trying to hit a drink and the state couldn't prove otherwise.

You can disagree with the judge and it seems like most do.


I posted the law. You do not need to prove intent with reckless behavior.

It wasn't reckless under the legal definition. I don't think the video proves intent beyond a reasonable doubt and can see why the judge made the decision he did.

If the judge were smart he would have convicted him and given him 10 hours of community service and a $100 fine.


That sentence would have sufficed.
The last thing we need is giving the precedence to cops that they can do any damn thing they please.
