From The Blaze:

A Georgia police officer received some unexpected resistance when responding to a bizarre incident at a park over the weekend.

Officer Brady Pike was punched in the face by a man suspected of causing a disturbance at the park playground Saturday afternoon when he allegedly picked up a child who belonged to another set of parents.

LaGrange Public Safety Chief Lou Dekmar told LaGrange Daily News that when Pike first arrived to investigate the incident, he asked the suspect to put the child down.

But after the man cooperated, letting the child go, the situation took an abrupt turn.

According to Dekmar, the suspect immediately lunged at Pike and punched the officer in the face.

The brawl that ensued afterwards was caught on camera by witnesses at the park who recorded altercation with their cellphones.

In one video, the suspect can be seen furiously swinging at Pike, who takes the man to the ground in an effort to subdue him. But the man continued with the punches, hitting Pike in the face again.

Pike’s body pack, which included him camera and radio, fell off during the fight, Dekmar said. The officer then asked witnesses to call 911, which they did.

A second video shows another LaGrange police officer and a witness assisting Pike in restraining and handcuffing the man.

The suspect, whom police identified as David Noles, is being held in the Troup County Jail on a $7,000 bond, WTVM-TV reported. Noles has been charged with obstruction of an officer and disorderly conduct, according to the Troup County sheriff’s website.
