It seems the guy’s a documented asshole. Developers are always so lovable around here, aren’t they? It does make their projects nicer.
Notice how the Burbank PD went out of its way to lie on his behalf. They also misreported his age to keep him from being readily identified. He was 10 years older at the time.
Four arrested at war protest
May 15, 2004
Three Burbank men and a Burbank boy placed one another under citizen’s arrest following a fight that broke out during a recent anti-war rally outside of the Media City Center, authorities said.
Tim Behunin, 43, got out of his 2003 Range Rover and allegedly punched protester William Nelson, 30, several times after a heated argument between the two and another protester, 19-year-old Piero Giunti, about 6 p.m. May 7 at Burbank and San Fernando boulevards, Burbank Police Sgt. Jay Jette said.
Nelson allegedly sat in the sport utility vehicle to prevent Behunin from leaving before police arrived, Jette said, adding that a 17-year-old boy tried to restrain Behunin from attacking Nelson again.
“There was no argument about the war,” Jette said. “It was back-and-forth accusations where one accused the other of derogatory remarks and the other denied, saying they were misheard.”
Oh, fuck you, BPD spokesman. Anyone can see what this was about. Why are you covering for his behavior?
Nelson suffered a cut on his forehead and was treated at the scene, Jette said, adding that the four suspects were cited and released.
Behunin, Giunti and Nelson are scheduled to be arraigned for battery June 7 at Burbank Superior Court, and the boy is scheduled for arraignment on July 7 at Sylmar Juvenile Facility.
No, you’re right. This had nothing to do with the war. Behunin just jumped out of his Range Rover and confronted these war protesters because he was worried about whether or not they’d had enough to eat.
It was just a misunderstanding!
This is also the same time period btw when the BPD was pulling motorists over and ticketing them for blowing their car horns in support of these same peace marchers off of SF. They lied about that one, too.
God bless the FBI for coming in a few years later. Burbank seriously needed that cleansing.
