Police officer in fight at Big Texan

The Big Texan in Amarillo is known for many things, the most famous being the 72 oz steak challenge. Many have tried, many have failed. Many have succeeded again. They also brew some pretty good beers there.

That’s why many at The Big Texan have had one or two too many beers, and as long as you’re civil and don’t do something stupid like try to drive home afterwards, that’s okay. We’ve all experienced it.

However, one person recently decided to act a bit childish and frankly stupid. The backstory here is that the guy was a little drunk and was cut off by the bartender. The man wasn’t exactly enthusiastic about it.

Each night, an officer is assigned to The Big Texan to let their staff out and collect the night’s deposit. But on this particular night, the officer was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

IT ALL STARTED WITH A HUG

Perhaps this gentleman was thanking the officer for his service. But maybe he wasn’t. As you can see, the man has his arms behind the officer, but as much as this looks like a man saying “thank you,” he’s saying something completely different.

REJECTION

The officer wasn’t in the mood to hug the man, so he took matters into his own hands. He goes to the ground while the officer holds his hand on the back of his head to prevent him from getting back up and showing him more love.

I’m sorry, I’ll help you make a backup

Once the officer has found some support, he decides that he is going to help the man back up. Perhaps he realized he was being a little too harsh on the man and thought it would be a nice gesture to get him off the ground.

Maybe I shouldn’t have done that

The man started to get up on his own, as you can see, and the poor officer happened to be in the wrong place. As you can see, the man ends up under the officer but now has him off the ground. Maybe he’ll jump back down so the officer can get out.

WOOD!

The man definitely let the officer off the ride. Unfortunately, the officer ended up on another ride that he probably didn’t want to get on. The man lifts him into the air and then rolls him off his back over the railing.

He’s not sorry

As the officer hits the ground, the man begins to pull his shirt back down and stares at the officer as if he is proud of what he has done. He feels like he has won the battle and can go free. He would be seriously wrong.

I SEE YOU

The officer stands back up, the man standing tall and proud as the officer shines his flashlight on him. He lets him know that he has him in mind clearly, and that the next move he tries to make won’t go the way he plans.

I do not want any problems

They both start walking back to the entrance of The Big Texan and it looks like the guy just wants to call a truce, get back in, eat his meal and probably drink beer. The officer had other plans. Sorry dude, but dinner’s over according to the eight police cars that just arrived.

A MENU OF DIFFERENT TYPES

When Walter Prichard walked into The Big Texan that evening, he ordered from a menu littered with many different types of steaks, but as you can see, he left with a menu of his own. Criminal trespass, resisting arrest or transportation, and the one we can all see, assault police officer/judge.
