The police officer tried to calm the man down but he committed aggressive actions against the officer having hit him, Censor.NET reports.
The drunken rowdy was handcuffed and lain on the ground a few seconds later.
"Even the daughter tried to pacify her aggressive father. Now it is the criminal case registered under number 120 ... 576 in the Unified Register of Pre-trial Investigations under Part 2 of the Article 345 of the Criminal Code "threat or violence against a law enforcement officer" which is investigated by the Holosiieve district police department. The handcuffs were loosened later. It is not worth threatening or attacking a police officer!" Interior Ministry spokesman Artem Shevchenko wrote on Facebook.
