All I want to say is thank you police. For every person who wants to criticize and analyze, I don't even care. Excuse me if I want to thank the men and women of our law enforcement. Maybe this guy needs some serious analyzation himself.

Gaul also identified himself from the photo.

Cop: "Are you the guy in this photo?"
Any sane person: "Sorry, Officer, I can't help you with that."
This guy: "Yeah, that's me."

I guess Robert had the Gaul to attack another person while already having a warrant. (rimshot)
