A golden piece of leaked security camera footage has gone viral recently, with the star of the ship being Brandenton Police Lieutenant William Weldon, who used some great moves, showing how well trained of a cop he was to take down this thug.
Lieutenant William Weldon was responding to burglary alarm in the neighborhood. At first, the thug trying to rob the store appeared to be non aggressive, but then Isaac Dubon, 23, decided to attack the police officer.
The two struggled for more than a minute. Very impressive considering a round in a professional fight is only three minutes. The officer fought back although Dubon was trying to gouge out his eyes, and eventually disarmed him.
Blue Lives Matter has more:
During the fight, Isaac Dubon got Lieutenant William Weldon in a headlock, tried to gouge his eyes out, and went for his gun. The fight continued on for one minute and 45 seconds, and the lieutenant never gave up.
Finally, the hero broke free and drew his weapon. As Lieutenant Weldon pointed his gun at Dubon, the burglar continued to aggressively come at the lieutenant.
One minute and 45 seconds is an extraordinarily long time to fight, and even professional athletes would be exhausted. Out of breath and faced with a suspect who showed lethal intent, Lieutenant William Weldon was more than justified in firing his gun; most officers would have. However, most officers don’t have the pair of brass balls that this badass is packing.
Rather than shoot, the lieutenant pistol-whipped the suspect, instantly knocking him out cold. Another officer then arrived to take the suspect into custody while the lieutenant took a moment to recover, no-doubt briefly overwhelmed by how awesome he was.
This is something that they don’t teach you in the police academy. Bravo, sir. Bravo.
