This arrest of former Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Malik McDowell is lucky to be alive. The arrest video recently and obtained by TMZ is off the chain. The former Michigan State defensive tackle was lucky he did not get shot.
McDowell manages to get past the officer and into the station’s convenience store that things escalate. Inside, the officer is heard repeatedly commanding McDowell to place his hands behind his back as he struggles to get a grip on the 6-foot-6, 300-pound player.
“Put your hands behind your back. You’re gonna get tased,” the officer yells out as McDowell pushes him away, knocking over various displays in the store. “You’re gonna get tased. Sit down! Get down! Get down! Get down! On the ground! On the f**king ground!”
Although McDowell eventually sits on the ground, he’s not down for long. The officer deploys his department-issued stun gun on McDowell for not complying with his orders, but the former defensive tackle completely disregards the electrical prongs and attempts to rush the officer.
This is a wild video.
