Outrageous Reports: 3 British Royal Navy Members Charged with Assaulting Dallas Cop
A police officer in Dallas was assaulted over the weekend when he tried to break up a fight outside a bar.
Now, authorities say that the three men responsible for his injuries were in fact members of the British Royal Navy.
Dallas Police Senior Cpl. Gerardo Huante was trying to separate the men on Saturday when they turned and started hitting him, Fox 4 reported.
Huante was working an off-duty security job at the time.
Each of the three British servicemen, who reportedly also kicked the police officer, have now been charged with assault on a public servant, a third-degree felony.
They were identified by police as Christopher Casey, 28; Christopher Hickman, 30; and Callum Duncan, 26.
According to the Dallas Morning News, the British Consulate in Houston did not respond for a comment and the three men are no longer in jail.
