The moral of the story is that bad things happen when you sucker punch a police officer.

A video is going viral right now of a man's altercation with police officers in Newburgh. The video shows a situation that was escalated quickly and was resolved just as quickly with minimal damage.

Tensions are high in Newburgh right now and police along with first responders are stretched incredibly thin.

The man who posted the video is advocating for the officer's defense. The man depicted in the video allegedly had a knife and was threatening those around him. The officer arrived shortly after he was called by the cameraman. Take a look at the crazy video that's going viral but be prepared for some strong language.

"This is not police brutality. They were doing there job as this man came into my property and threatened me and my family. If you want the full story just contact me."
