    LAS VEGAS (FOX5) - A Las Vegas man is being lauded for coming to the aid of a police officer involved in an altercation with a much larger man.
    The incident took place Friday morning at the Jack in the Box restaurant located near Boulder Highway and Russell Road.
    According to Metro police and witnesses, Curtis Traupman was screaming at employees. Regular customers said they've witnessed Traupman being rude to cashiers in the past, but his behavior Friday morning went well beyond that.
    "Inside, he was raising hell and doing all this stuff," witness Ron Tartamella said.
    Traupman was asked to leave the restaurant, and a Metro officer arrived to escort him out. According to Traupman's arrest report, the officer told him he wasn't under arrest but had to leave the business.
    It was then, according to police and witnesses, that Traupman attacked the officer, punching him in the face and head.
    Traupman is 6'4" tall and 240 pounds. The officer stands 5'7" and weighs 160 pounds.
    According to his arrest report, Traupman tried to snatch the officer's gun from its holster, screaming, "I'm going to kill you, you [expletive]!"
    That's when, according to witnesses, another man stepped in, pulling Traupman off of the officer. The officer was then able to place Traupman in handcuffs.
    "It's not right. I don't know if the guy was on something, but he shouldn't have acted like that," Tartamella said.
    The officer was taken to a hospital for treatment for minor cuts and bruises.
    FOX5 reached out to the good Samaritan in preparation for this story, but he said he couldn't comment as the case remains under investigation.
    Traupman is charged with battery on a police officer, resisting a police officer and attempted murder on a police officer.

    Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

    I'll bet that this idiot would have never swung on an officer his own size. Hopefully he runs into some more size-appropriate sparring partners in prison. I'm certainly glad that someone had the balls to step in and act. It doesn't sound like this would have ended well otherwise.

          Glad someone stepped in before the guy ended up seriously injuring or killing the officer. All over not wanting to be escorted out of a restaurant..

                Damn, he should have had his cell phone camera on and posted the video. WHAT was the stupid good Samaritan thinking?

                  When I first read the story, I had this video come to mind:

                    The dirtbag should thank the citizen for saving his life. Given his threat to kill the officer and his attempt to disarm him. Most likely when the officer breaks free he creates distance and puts 4-5 rounds down range.
