Charles Ross is an internet comedian of sorts who films himself doing, what some would call, funny stunts.

One day in March of 2013 Ross gathered up the courage to hurdle over two Sarasota County Deputies sitting at a picnic table.


After he completed this acrobatic feat over 2 cops he begins to exchange words with them.

One of the deupties tells him that the next time he does this he will,  “break his freakin’ neck!”

Really? Is that how Sarasota County Deputies treat people who’ve cause them no harm, by threatening to break their necks?

Once they found out they were on film the deputies got really mad and decided to arrest Ross for some alleged crime.

The off-duty deputies charged Ross with Breach of the Peace and Disorderly Conduct. According to the police report the deputy was in fear of being caused personal injury.

“the defendant was in extremely close proximity to striking my head and neck, or possibly landing on me…his actions placed me in immediate risk of personal injury.”

The charges were later changed to culpable negligence along with resisting arrest without violence.

What do you think? Did Ross deserve to be arrested for simply jumping over a cop?

    IDK know if he deserved to be arrested, but look, don’t mess with police. Don’t draw attention to yourself, don’t tell them hi on the street, don’t invite them into your house, don’t let them search your car without a warrant, try not to break a law, and most of all, don’t do a stupid human trick in front of them.
    Police are not your friends, police are not out to protect the pubic, police don’t GAF about you…don’t fuck around with police.

      Middle class white people are given the impression that police are on their side. Middle class house wives and professionals are allowed to talk back, berate and talk down to police, because middle class white people have the power.
      But middle class white children and young adults have very little power over police. Police will tackle, taze and take down a middle class white child with the same impunity as a poor white adult. They won’t shoot you because they do not see you as a threat, but they will still fuck you up, and your white middle class parents will support the police’s decision to “teach Charlie a lesson”
