VIDEO: Man Arrested, Charged With Assault For Pointing Finger At Cops

Disrespecting a police officer is now a crime

A Fredericksburg man faces two counts of assault for allegedly pointing his finger at police officers, another example of how any behavior except complete subservience to law enforcement is now being treated as a crime.

David Loveless, who has no criminal record, was arrested and handcuffed last week after he allegedly made a hand gesture at police who had testified against his son in a robbery case.

He now faces two counts of assault on a law enforcement officer by way of intimidation and two counts of obstruction of justice.

Police spokesperson Natatia Bledsoe claimed Loveless made a gun gesture at police officers, but Loveless denies making any kind of gesture at all.

“I don’t see how I was pointing my finger,” Loveless told ABC7. ” If anything I was reaching into my pocket to get a pack of cigarettes. If that’s what they saw, they have a vivid imagination.”

On face value I do not believe the man who said he was reaching for a pack of cigarettes.

It was in the heat of emotional turmoil at the time. I think the man did make a hand gesture as if pointing a gun at the police.

I was arrested for telling my wife's sister that she was going to go to hell for the way she was treating her mother. The cop handcuffed me...threw me into a squad car with the windows up on a 85 degreee day and let me sit there until he finished and then drove me off to get processed. This was in jolly New Lisbon, WIsconsin...such a nice place to NOT LIVE...
