That’s where the teen realized he’d made a poor choice. The house was lined with photos of the man in an officer’s uniform. The teen soon cracked, saying he ‘accidentally’ pushed his foster mother –who was actually beaten fairly severely, according to medical personnel. When he asked the detective, ‘What are we going to do now?’ the man says he replied, “I don’t know what we’re going to do, but you’re going to jail.

A Florida man is behind bars after getting into a brawl with a police chief who objected to his reading of the Constitution, namely his view that he had “the constitutional right to kill any cop he thought was bad.”Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood initially ignored Michael Dangelo’s ranting, but when he turned to walk away, Dangelo spat on the back of the officer’s neck, then started to bite his hand, at one point clamping down so hard, the chief said, “I thought I’m going to lose my finger if he keeps it up.” He was able to subdue the man with some help from bystanders. Dangelo was charged with two felonies – aggravated battery against a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer with violence – and a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.
