Isaac Dubon (left), the thug’s confrontation with the officer (right)
After a Bradenton, Florida police officer was informed about an alarm going off at a nearby jewelry store, he arrived on the scene to find a thief in the middle of a burglary. Surprisingly, the suspect seemed willing to comply with the officer’s orders. However, things took an unexpected turn when the thug suddenly attacked the cop, and the officer was forced to give the thug a surprise that he never saw coming.
When Lieutenant William Weldon responded to a burglary alarm at a local jewelry store, he confronted the thief, Isaac Dubon. Initially, Dubon seemed to be non-aggressive, prompting Weldon to holster his weapon. Unfortunately, that was the very moment that the thug decided to attack Weldon in an attempt to steal his sidearm. However, what happened next even left seasoned officers calling Weldon a badass after he delivered one epic surprise to the thief.
Luckily, the entire incident was captured on surveillance video for the entire world to see. When Dubon attacked the officer, he managed to get him into a very compromising headlock. Once the thug was confident that the officer wasn’t going to escape his hold, he then “tried to gouge his eyes out, and went for his gun,” according to Blue Lives Matter.
Thankfully, Dubon wasn’t successful in getting the officer’s gun, but the pair continued to wrestle for a minute and 45 seconds, which is an exhausting feat for even a seasoned athlete. Thankfully, the lieutenant never gave up, eventually broke free, and quickly drew his weapon on Dubon.
Although the lieutenant was more than justified to fire his gun, he didn’t. In fact, the badass cop decided to give the deserving thug an embarrassing surprise instead – he pistol whipped the suspect and instantly knocked him out cold. Moments later, backup arrived and helped Weldon place his attacker in custody. Although Dubon’s slew of charges hasn’t been released, he is currently being held on a $12,000 bond.
Although the left likes to pretend that all offices are corrupt, the rest of us know this isn’t true. Police officers put their uniforms on every day, knowing that they may not return home to their families. Still, they choose to protect the citizens of our country, knowing their life could be in danger. This is the very reason police officers deserve the utmost respect, and it’s a shame that we even need to discuss it.
This situation could have easily turned out much worse. Lieutenant Weldon could have been injured or even killed. However, Weldon was able to keep focused even in the most stressful situation, essentially proving that he’s one of many officers who will do anything to protect the citizens he vowed to keep safe.
I think it’s safe to say that this thug got a brutal surprise and learned a difficult lesson — don’t disrespect a cop or else you just might wake up in the backseat of his car after he was forced to pistol whip you into submission. It’s much easier to just comply or not break the law in the first place.
