Ryan Thompson was arrested at Bailey's Iris Pub, 411 Broadway, after he was found wandering around the kitchen area after hours, according to Metro police reports. He was also observed banking on the front window after being escorted out. When police arrived, Thompson was so intoxicated that they deemed him a danger and took him into custody.
While in police custody, Thompson became increasingly belligerent. He identified himself as a member of the Culver City, California Police Department.
Thompson then made threats against the officers family on multiple occasions, saying “I can’t wait to get a hold of your son”. An officer asked Thompson if he was threatening officer’s family and the defendant replied no.
At that point, Thompson then made another statement, “I’m not threatening your family but I’m going to f*** them up.” Based on the defendant’s occupation as a police officer and his ability to pull up personal information the threat was deemed credible.

Houston brother will be his own attorney in court
June 18, 2013 13:02 GMT
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Roane County man will face federal gun violation charges next month without an attorney.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/17VlXpM ) reported Rocky Joe Houston will represent himself on a charge of possession of a gun by a felon.
The charge came after Houston earlier represented himself in state court on charges stemming from a police chase. He was convicted of evading arrest and reckless endangerment.
Houston and his brother, Leon Houston, were tried, but not convicted, in the 2006 shooting deaths of a Roane County deputy and his ride-along companion.
In federal court, Rocky Joe Houston is claiming the officer who charged him with the felony had no legal authority.
