Punching a defenseless 45-year-old woman and trying to fight your way out of jail are two very different things in terms of level of difficulty, something a New Jersey thug found out the hard way.
According to the U.K. Daily Mail, Ibn Hunter, a 25-year-old male, was taken into custody by Atlantic City police Monday in connection with a Friday attack, video of which went viral for all the wrong reasons.
The attack, which was recorded by one of Hunter’s friends, showed Hunter harassing a homeless woman in what appeared to be a park. After mocking her and seeming to dance around, he smacked the defenseless, sitting woman once across the face, knocking her out cold.
All the while, Hunter’s friend behind the camera was laughing.
Those who saw the video weren’t laughing, however. After someone contacted the Atlantic City police about the assault, they made the connection to a woman who had been taken to the hospital in critical condition with a head injury.
Hunter was taken into custody Monday, but not before he managed to make sure he wasn’t just facing aggravated assault charges. Oh, no. When an officer was strip searching him, Hunter decided that he was going to fight his way out of prison.
Unfortunately, real life is not quite like “On Deadly Ground” or “Road House,” and Hunter is neither a fighter who can put out oil fires nor a highly-paid bouncer proficient in tai chi.
That’s why he ended up looking like this in his eventual mug shot:
Yes, it seems that unlike homeless woman that you sucker punch, police officers a) actually fight back and b) know how to fight. That’s why he ended up with a lacerated head, a puffy lip, a bruised ego and a really bad mugshot. Oh, and he also ended up with a charge of assault on a police officer.
Hunter was held on $100,000 bail. It may perhaps not surprise you to discover he has a long rap sheet, including drug and theft offenses.
Police are still searching for the man who put the video up on Facebook. He has since deleted his account — which, as we know, makes every last bit of trouble go away.
