A Texas police officer Winston Bowen nicknamed “Blade” after Marvel Comics was caught on video during an impromptu boxing match with a teen after responding to a noise complaint.
“They were having a little barbeque, they were playing some music, and there were some kids out there with some gloves,” Bowen told tv station KTVT. “There’s this perception that police officers have guns, we have a badge, but we can’t fight.”
One witness told the tv station that “everybody” in the neighborhood loves Bowen.“When he pulls up, they’re like, ‘Aw, there’s Officer Blade.
