Prankster Does Flip Over Police, Gets Arrested [Video]
This video that's been making its way around the internet lately comes to us from Sarasota, Florida. The video shows a young man identified as Charles Ross doing an incredibly acrobatic flip over two Sarasota police officers sitting at a picnic table in a park.
Unfortunately things take a turn for the worse for Ross when the officers who were completely unaware of Ross' plans discover they were being filmed. The officers put Ross in cuffs and charge him for both culpable negligence and resisting arrest.
Culpable negligence, as defined Florida State law, may apply in this situation under the following clause:
(1) Whoever, through culpable negligence, exposes another person to personal injury commits a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
The video has been met with mixed reactions with some applauding the officers for cuffing the kid for his dangerous prank, and others believing the officers overreacted.
Our question to you is, do you think he officers were correct in cuffing the prankster, or was this a gross overreaction by the police? Let us know in the comment section.
