Former rugby league star Mr. Scott Moore, who’s had several violent bust-ups during his career, was sentenced in an English court to 23 months in prison for his behavior during a violent arrest of which Manchester police has just released the footage.

Back in October 2016, Mr. Moore fought off police officers for nearly an hour despite being hit with a 50,000-volt stun gun six times. The giant rugby player terrified police as he kept getting back on his feet after they hit him.

Mr. Moore grunted and growled at the terrified officers who tried to arrest him after following his black Mercedes during a 150mph car chase.

The dashcam footage from the police vehicle shows Mr. Moore’s Mercedes overtaking a truck at 100mph before continuing to accelerate along the A580 at speeds of more than 150mph.

He then runs off into a housing estate where he fights police officers for nearly an hour. The 5ft 10in man at a certain point managed to grab the stun gun of one of the police officers, pointing it in his face and yelling: "You're getting it now!"

Detective Constable Mr. Lynsey Watson-Perry: "In all their careers, the officers at the scene had never been so scared nor witnessed such a violent individual that had so much strength to fight"

"Moore knew exactly what he was doing, using his size and experience on the rugby field to evade officers in a desperate struggle that threatened both the safety of officers and innocent members of the public.

"Whatever level of force he is used to displaying on the pitch, this was not a game, people's lives were in danger and an officer had to undergo surgery.”

"I am satisfied that now Moore has been taken away from the society he posed a threat to, he is facing the consequences of his crimes."

why? because the police have no guns. the police can't even protect themselves. 1 hour of fighting off the police that's uncalled for. I bet if an officer put a 44 mag in his face that would have been the end of it

Tell ya what, when it comes to non-lethal, there's a Swiss company that makes a mean gun that blasts a very concentrated pepper gel at very high velocity. Doesn't matter how big you are when you get one of those even near your face.
