    Bronx man who tried to grab cop's gun claimed he needed it

    Bronx man who tried to grab cop's gun claimed he needed it

    He tried to take the officer's gun because he needed it.

    So said the 27-year-old Bronx man who tried to grab the uniformed cop's weapon outside Monroe College Tuesday night, according to court papers.

    "You don't understand. I need your gun," Ronald Santos told NYPD officer Gyasi K. Thompson at about 7:35 p.m. Tuesday, outside the Fordham Manor college on Jerome Ave. near E. 190th St, according to a criminal complaint.

    What happened next was caught on surveillance video, cop sources said — the two struggled, and though the gun got free, the officer kept it in his left hand as he tried to restrain Santos with his right hand.

    EXCLUSIVE: MAN, 27, TRIES TO GRAB COP'S GUN OUTSIDE BRONX COLLEGE, 4 ONLOOKERS FAIL TO HELP

    A security guard who saw the bizarre scuffle came to the police officer's aid, but four other pedestrians watched from the sidewalk and did nothing.

    Santos later told police, "I have been seeing a lot of police officers and I just went up to the officer standing in front of Monroe College. I went to grab his gun. We fell to the ground. I kept trying to grab the gun. I wanted to take the gun and run away with it," according to the complaint.

    Thompson, an 11-year-NYPD veteran, is assigned to PSA 6 and was working a paid detail outside the college.

    Santos' lawyer, Paul London, said his client has never been convicted of a crime, and he didn't know of any past psychological issues.

    London said he hasn't seen the video.

    "Something was going on which we just don't understand," London said.

    Santos, who was arraigned Wednesday on attempted robbery, felony assault and other charges, remains held on $15,000 bond or $10,000 cash bail.

    Can't have the gun but that stunt should have gotten him 3-4 bullets

      Good reason to pay attention during the MDTS gun retention drills.
      Know your rights/Refuse peacefully to consent to a search /Ask if you are free to go or are being detained/Even if you are not doing anything wrong the 4th Amendment protects you against unreasonable searches/Never say anything to law enforcement even if you think it will help you/If questioned you should clearly and unequivocally request that you would like to have an attorney present and defer any questions until then/Never go to prison because you are afraid to go to jail.

          There are two types of people in this world. People that think the Goverment is looking out for their best interest and people that just think !

            Article says watched, $100 they were recording it trying to document police brutality or some other liberal cause.. If cop gun discharged, you know the headline would be Cop shoots blah blah blah..

              Luckily this didn't go south. At least the security guard did something other than play with their cell phone during the struggle.

                  Assault a cop a dry to steal his gun, $10,000 bail? Steal $10mm and get RoR'ed. WTF is wrong with our system?
                  If he grabbed the gun and was not licensed is that a criminal possession of a weapon in addition to his other charges?
