I'm watching this now so I don't quite know how it ends yet. Some big bad bald cop has had a few too many it seems and is taking his frustrations out on some woman. At least, that's how it appears to me. Restaurant patrons are trying to calm him down and have him let her go but he's having none of that. How's he going to get her to jail? In the back of his car after he finishes his beer? What a loser.

What the heck? That's appalling! It's so obvious that he is drunk, and therefore not in any way in control of his actions. What has she supposedly done to him anyway. It just looks like a total power thing to me, the way he is making her stand up and sit down, and manhandling her, controlling her. Did he make a pass at her and she told him to get lost or something?

Looking forward to seeing how this turns out, it's a blatant abuse of power. Truly shocking.

So she had turned him down..what a loser. Very glad he was immediately fired, good job to whoever filmed it.

ETA I see it was one of her colleagues who filmed it and the article was from October last year. Still it is totally shocking that someone could abuse their power like that.

The adage When a member of the male species is a complete [insert expletive] to girls/people in general, it is to compensate for his lack in pen size. seems appropriate.

For someone to do this type of thing indicates to me that his whole life must just be one big superiority complex-fest and we are merely seeing a snippet of what the bloke is like on a daily basis.

What a total jackass and the true definition of the term pig. If he isn't fired then how can regular people have any amount of respect for police?

Looking forward to seeing how this turns out...


Columbia police arrived and after watching the cell-phone video told him to release the girl.

He was charged with assault and battery.


Onlookers showed concern for the woman and told the raging officer that he had “crossed the line” and should let her go. Restaurant-goers murmured that somebody should “call the “real cops.”

When a few men approached the officer, he threatened to arrest them. “You wanna get an attitude? STEP AWAY!!”

Shortly thereafter, Columbia police arrived. They spoke to witnesses and saw the cell-phone video. They ordered that Derrick release Ball, then took him into custody and charged him with assault and battery.

Sheriff Leon Lott initially backed Derrick — disagreeing with Columbia Police — saying that he had authority to make an arrest, suggesting that Ball was “resisting.”

After a week of pressure and reasoning, Sheriff Lott placed Derrick on leave without pay, according to WISTV.

The Columbia Police Department eventually responded to the scene. But rather than backing up the deputy, the officers put him in handcuffs after reviewing the cellphone video shot by patron Steven Hughes.

“He watched maybe the first 30 seconds of it. And when he heard the Marine-Army comment he said, ‘Alright, things just changed. Arrest him, 10-37, and release her.’ And that’s when I said, ‘Sir, I know it’s hard, but that’s the right thing,’” Hughes told WIS-TV.

Police will hold a news conference on Wednesday to discuss the incident and possibly release more information.

Someone should of ran up and dropped kicked the idiot.
Does he have the authority to arrest someone while off duty and under the influence.
His judgement is impaired also. Hope this idiot bully cop gets sued to hell and back.

Good!! he got fired. Now what about a law suit.

What is wrong with the men? He is a guy in t-shirt attacking a woman. I would have tackled him over the metal railing with intent to break any bone I could. Not even a second thought. I'm not just spouting off. I have seen men beating women. I am hardwired to smash in that situation.

That's when the people trying to calm the big bald cop need to take action and stop his hurtful intentions.

Bravado is all well and good. Until that is, the off duty cop pulls a concealed weapon and kills you, and makes the claim it was fully justified and he was in fear of his life. Drunk or not, he will get the full support of the department, irrespective of what started it all.

His aim better be true. I would only be triple pissed before I bled out.

Isn't it about time all LEO's and Civil Servants had to wear some sort of video and audio recording device when executing their duties?

The technology is there and in terms of reducing "crime"- we might as well start in the areas the taxpayer subsidises.

If you are undertaking a public duty- that public duty needs to 100% auditable by the public.

He wasn't executing his duties though, he was off duty, drinking in a bar, and I think by the looks of his actions, wearing a camera/recording equipment, probably wouldn't make any difference to the way he conducts himself

That's the point.
Any actions are not official unless they are publicly recorded for future public scrutiny.

As well as producing badge, gun and handcuffs, any police officer- when acting in any official capacity, also has to wear a head cam with visible red flashing light to show it is active and sending data to a secure, publicly scrutinised location.

Would this situation occur?? -Probably not- even a drunk driver tried to keep to the speed limit.
Would the bystanders feel more assured if the cop had to also record his official duties- Yes
Is it technologically feasible: Yes
Is it financially feasible: Given the current number of costly police complaints that could be expedited (as in this case due to the video evidence): Almost certainly.

Its a big glaring hole in the way we allow ourselves to be policed- virtually every other aspect of public life is not monitored by surveillance technology for assurance of all parties (Public areas, public buildings, Businesses, Roads, Schools, Nurseries, the internet, Banks, Airports, etc etc)

They are actually doing it in the UK so if it become a reality expect to see police complaints drop significantly.

I saw this awhile back and all I could think about was how someone really needed to pick up one of those metal chairs and drop it on his head.

Ahh right, get you now. No head gear, then no jurisdiction or rights as an officer, and I suppose they could still make a citizens arrest if the situation genuinely called for it. That's fair enough
