That is how you detain a suspect.

There’s an old saying that “you should never bring a knife to a gun fight,” the implication being a gun will always triumph.

I’d like to add an addendum to that: “You should never bring a baseball bat to a police station,” because you are also going to lose that fight as well.

Christopher Rivas, 28, is accused of doing just that in West Covina, Califonia, and the whole incident was caught on camera: He takes a baseball bat to a police station. He slaps it against a window a couple times. Then moments later, he gets speared so far forward in time his court appearance will be in front of a robot judge.


Watch it. You can actually pinpoint the second his spine rips in half.

KSBY reports Rivas was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest.
