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.

June 20, 2013 08:10 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A new study of domestic violence in Tennessee last year found women were nearly two times more likely to be victimized than men and children were the victims in 16 percent of all family violence cases.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation put out a report this week analyzing crime statistics from law enforcement agencies across the state. Their findings show that nearly 15 percent of all crimes reported were domestic in nature.
The study looked at the relationships between victims and offenders as well as the influence of drugs and alcohol on family violence. The study found that more than 17 percent of family violence involves drugs or alcohol, with alcohol being the most common.
