— A 24-year-old Raleigh man was arrested and charged Saturday with hitting a Raleigh police officer, then attempting to take her gun to shoot her while at a Raleigh bar, according to an arrest warrant.

Jason Edward Froeber, of 3909 Headwater Court, is charged with assault on a law enforcement officer, attempted common law robbery, injury to personal property and disorderly conduct.

The incident happened at the Raleigh Times Bar, where Officer D. Montemurro was working. Froeber also used abusive language towards Montemurro and broke a wine glass, according to a warrant.

Froeber, whose first court appearance is Tuesday, remained in the Wake County jail Monday under a $91,500 bond.

    Please explain your comment. My comments are neither ignorant, as I don't post unless I have some semblance of an idea about which I speak and they are not arrogant as I do not sit on a pedestal and talk down to honest citizens of the US as if I am better and smarter than they are as he does. So please explain your flippant post.

    I guess certain people would find the officer wrong. But its clear the young man was in the wrong and was rightfully charged.

    Ditto. But of coarse women can't be policemen, because they are called Police Officers (PC).

    Maybe that is why he tried to take her gun. He wasn't really wanting the gun to shoot her, he wanted the gun to keep her from shooting him.

    Be careful, the week is young yet. Someone could top it.

    But, yes, I suspect this LEO is plenty able to take care of herself. He did NOT get her gun, so she could have shot him.

    OMG, no Bud Light? You should maybe branch out a little and find out what beer should really taste like.

    But a word of caution. First, note that there may have been alcohol involved in this incident. I know, shocking. Second, if you look on their beer menu, you will see a wide range of alcohol percentages. You can, if you like, choose a beer with less than 5% alcohol, or one with ABV over 10%. Lesson: it's easy to get really drunk on a couple of 10% beers. Be careful.
