    What not to do to a LEO: Man charged with punching deputy

    Daily Freeman - Kerhonkson man charged with punching deputy

    KERHONKSON (NY) - A Kerhonkson man was jailed after punching a sheriff's deputy in the face and attempting to take the deputy's firearm during an investigation into a violent assault, according to the Ulster County Sheriff's Office.

    Ray W. Burkard, 56, of 21 Upper Cherrytown Road, was charged with felony assault, felony tampering with physical evidence, and the misdemeanors of resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration and assault. He was also charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation.

    Police responded to a 911 report of a violent assault at Burkard's residence shortly before midnight Tuesday and found a woman with obvious injuries who said that Burkard had assaulted her, deputies said. When deputies contacted Burkard, he had a quantity of marijuana, which he attempted to flush down a toilet. Burkard then became aggressive towards deputies, and struck a deputy in the face and tried to remove the deputy's gun, deputies said. During the struggle before he was subdued, Burkard's arm was broken.

    The assaulted woman refused medical treatment, deputies said. The deputy, who was not identified, was treated for facial injuries and released, and Burkard was sent to the Ellenville Regional Hospital for treatment. He was then sent to the Ulster County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.

    Deputies were assisted by state police.

    I sometimes wonder how some people reach the age they do, when they act as dumb as they are. Maybe the time he spends behind bars will smarten him up....but I doubt it!

    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Attempting to take a person's gun by force is a Lethal Force situation.

    As has been already stated, "He's lucky he didn't get shot." I will just add, stabbed, tazed or any other options that one may have available to help defend oneself. The deputy is very very lucky and should go buy a lottery ticket.

    This proves that age is not a prerequisite for knowledge.
    The most exhilarating thing in life is getting shot at with no results.
