I speculate that the boy waved them off fearing police involvment for the accident that was his fault...and then lied to his daddy who went off half cocked.
Edward, I do believe that you are on to something my friend.....

That's a good tid bit of information

I just don't got much "back up" or "quit" in me! Too many years with bulldogs I guess.
Mind over matter they say. It could be handy if you ever find yourself in a defendant type situation.

Sometimes you're better off with Grayhounds.
Air goes in and out. Blood goes 'round and 'round.
Any variation on this is a very bad thing.

I just snarked coffee out my nose all over my walnut and oak veneer desk and electronics picturing my ugly mug on a greyhound runnin' "like the wind"... Come to think of it... I like your use of that breed to counter my analogy but figure my ugly mug is better suited on a bulldog body rather than the svelte runnin' dog!

The LEO in this case went way, way, way beyond the scope of his authority, and in my opinion, anyone in that store would have been justified in drawing down on him, and shooting him if he did not drop his weapon. He committed aggravated battery against Ms. Lawless (this is obvious to anyone who watched it) while brandishing a firearm. His status as a law enforcement officer works against him, not for him, in that circumstance. He was not responding to a call - he was proactively and without any foundation whatsoever attacking a citizen. I hope Ms. Lawless and the others are able to take everything he owns.
