The video, seen by thousands of people on social media, shows an unidentified officer and the arrested suspect, 18-year-old Christopher Verdin Jr., threatening each other.
"You want me to take this f*** badge off and handcuffs off and see what the f*** you really going to do?" the unidentified officer says at the start of the video. "You ain't s*** punk!"
Officers can only take so much. They were wrong in letting this skinny punk get to them, but from hearing his mouth running where he's trying to act all gangsta - and knowing what he's accused of doing -- beating his Mom's dog in the head with wrench, shooting at it and trying to kill it, terrorizing his own mother and being a meth head, I wish someone would take him out to the woodshed and give him the hiding his father should've done.
According to the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office, the incident started when deputies were called to 7077 Grand Caillou Road after Verdin's mother said her son was on crystal meth and that she feared for her life.
"She said that he hit their dog in the head with a crescent wrench," the statement from TPSO reads. "She said that Verdin also pulled a .45 caliber handgun from his waist band and fired two shots at the dog that was very close to her. The mother locked herself inside of the residence and said that Verdin left walking."
Deputies first encountered Verdin about one-quarter of a mile away from his home. Police say they found the .45 caliber handgun described by his mother tucked in Verdin's waistband along with an extended magazine.
Deputies handcuffed Verdin and took him back to his home, according to the Sheriff's Office. There, police say Verdin started kicking the patrol car door and spitting at officers, so deputies ordered him out of the car, but he refused.
That's when someone started recording.
"A citizen at the scene used his cell phone to video record this incident that only captures a portion of the incident," a statement from TPSO's reads. "The deputy choice of words was not very professional and does not reflect the integrity of the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office."
The statement goes on to say that officials will review the deputies' body camera footage to thoroughly investigate the confrontation and take appropriate action.
Christopher Lee Verdin Jr. was arrested for illegal use of a weapon, illegal carrying of a weapon and aggravated cruelty to animals and transported to the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex.
By the way, Frankie Duplantis is the one who shot the video and kept trying to creep closer and get in the deputies' way. Who is Frankie Duplanits? Well, she's the mother of Frankie Jo Duplantis, who just happens to be the mouthy punk's little girlfriend.
Duplantis senior says she's not against cops but took the video and aired it rather than contacting the sheriff's office directly.
Plus, her little princess, Frankie Jo, swears her boy toy isn't a meth head and denies that he tried to shoot his Mom's dog. Funny how she doesn't deny that little Chrissy beat his Mom's dog with a wrench...

Update: The little punk and his girlfriend's mommy got their way - the two officers in the video ended up being fired. I agree that they let this POS get them too upset, but I disagree with Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Jerry Larpenter for firing them. He should have disciplined them, but they are good deputies. They didn't kill anyone, they didn't beat anyone, they didn't steal drug money, they weren't caught with prostitutes... they let an 18 year old skinny punk get them angry, "conduct unbecoming of a police officer" is what the Sheriff used to justify firing them.
And now how much harder has the Sheriff made it for other deputies who have to deal with these morons? Apparently Verdin's daddy is a convicted felon for being a cocaine dealer and poacher who threatened deputies after little Junior was arrested for AGGRAVATED ANIMAL CRUELTY.
