    Off Duty Incident - LAPD

    Off-duty LAPD officer accused of restaurant tirade

    The 10-year department veteran is accused of pulling a knife and then a gun and threatening patrons in Redondo Beach in March.

    By Joel Rubin, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
    1:32 PM PDT, May 29, 2008

    A Los Angeles police officer was expected to surrender to authorities today on charges that he pulled a gun and threatened patrons during an off-duty tirade at a restaurant, the district attorney's office said.

    David Woon Chong, 38, allegedly got into a verbal confrontation and then pulled a knife on two other customers at an eatery on the Redondo Beach pier in March.

    When an onlooker intervened, Chong is said to have walked away but then returned a short time later. According to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office, Chong kicked food out of a man's hands, then brandished a semiautomatic handgun and pointed it at the man's head. The onlooker once again stepped in and escorted Chong, a 10-year LAPD veteran, out of the restaurant, officials said.

    Redondo Beach police stopped Chong in his car and arrested him. He allegedly had a 0.11 blood-alcohol level at the time of his arrest, over the legal limit.

    Chong is expected to be arraigned this afternoon at Los Angeles County Superior Court.

    If convicted of the expected charges, he faces up to 19 years in state prison.

    Wonder who the onlooker was.

    That would probably be the guy sitting in the chair next to him at the IA office.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    I think this is a good example of not dealing with the crap, the emotions, the presures of the job then one day, boom. We are expected to be superhuman-held to an almost unatainable standard at all times and never show that the presure is getting to us. We have to deal with that stuff or die with it. We have to take care of ourselves. I'll bet his parteners have said , "he's going to go off one day". Sadly if thats you, you are the last to see that your having a problem.

    My first thought is that he had prior history with the guys he drew down on, and the victims may well have been antagonizing the situation. Not an excuse, but at least a plausible explanation.
