Video of assault on NZ cop emerges

After a standoff between Kawhia
community constable Perry Griffin and Jackie Maikuku, the policeman is
knocked down and mobbed, new footage shows.

Two men charged over an alleged attack of a sole charge policeman at Kawhia have been further remanded without plea.

Jackie, 19, and Jack, 49, Maikuku both appeared in Te Awamutu
District Court this morning. Meanwhile, further footage of their alleged
assault on Constable Perry Griffin on January 11 has emerged.

Video footage last week showed Griffin pointing a Taser at Jackie Maikuku as he stood with his arms up by his side.

This new footage, aired by TV3 today, takes up where that footage stopped and shows Griffin on the retreat as a teenager advances towards him.

Griffin then takes aim with his Taser, but misses his target, with the Taser hitting the ground.
