Man punches cop several times as cop's partner watches

Published by : WWLTV
A 41-year-old man caught on camera beating a Housing Authority of New Orleans officer was then tazed and arrested, but what happened before the camera started rolling is a mystery so far.

The officer is visibly punched in the face multiple times and then pushed to the ground, as another HANO officer stands by and watches.

Bush's attorney, John Fuller, says his client was acting in self-defense and the officer picked the fight.

"I think there's some embarrassment on the part of the officer because my client obviously got the best of him, if you saw the video," Fuller said. "But there was nothing that my client did that was illegal."
