§33. Battery defined

Battery is the intentional use of force or violence upon the person of another; or the intentional administration of a poison or other noxious liquid or substance to another.

Noting there that requires intent to harm, just the intent to use force or violence.

It wasn't a cop, it was a Dome Security Guard.  I don't think they are allowed to carry guns. 

The Superdome is owned by a political subdivision (governmental entity) and has their own police force, and it sure looks like he’s carrying a gun (although it could possibly be a taser)

Being soft 

A sworn New Orleans police statement filed in Criminal District Court recounts how the stadium security lieutenant had been ordered to enforce the Superdome’s no-smoking policy when he confronted some LSU players in their locker room and asked them to put out their cigars.

...

According to police, the lieutenant momentarily “wanted to retaliate by punching the offender” — later identified as Beckham — but didn’t. That description appears to have been included to illustrate that the contact on the officer was unwanted. 

The officer also considered arresting Beckham but decided against it “due to the jovial atmosphere of the locker room.”

The sworn statement suggests the officer later realized who had slapped him after a cellphone video of the encounter had gone viral online. After calling police and undergoing an interview early Wednesday, the officer indicated that he wanted to press charges.

That officer insisted that his commanding officer instructed him that the smoking wasn’t permitted when another officer told the players it was OK, according to the report.

The zeal of the cop in enforcing the law isn’t the issue here. You can’t smack him on the ass if you think he’s being picky.

Hey, if I’m trying to run in and out of the house to save all my Kenny Rogers albums, last thing I want is some smarty pants fireman telling me I can’t go in there or squirting me with some damn hose while I’m doing it.

Meh, what he did fits the definition of battery. He made a stupid decision, and sometimes stupid decisions come with consequences. He should thank his lucky stars they’re not making it sexual or charging him with more because his stupid decision involved smacking a cop on the ass.

The cop for sure is soft for investigating the locker room for damage while people were still in it.

Or, that’s what he was getting paid to do.  

Comment 16 Jan 2020

If he’s stupid enough to slap a cop on the ass like that, he deserves to be arrested for felonious idiocy. No such charge exists, so battery will have to suffice. 

Comment 14 Jan 2020

Just say it’s being investigated and if any players were found to have accepted an impermissible benefit, appropriate action will be taken. Why spout some bullshit about an NFL player handing out fake cash?

Me and that dude from Dublin that burned himself making a nuclear reactor in his garage are building an EMP weapon for the coming robot apocalypse. We'll be fine.

That’s a statement from the attorney representing Cade Mays in the matter of him seeking a transfer waiver. I’d take anything he says with a grain of salt and consider it PR maneuvering.
