SAN FRANCISCO — As The San Francisco Examiner first reported, a jiu-jitsu instructor saved a San Francisco police officer from a pummeling after an alleged incident involving a Muni citation.

Now, there is the video of the event.

Police say that 23-year-old Paris Augusta assaulted a police officer after the cop escorted him off a Muni bus following a routine fare inspection. Augusta allegedly walked away from the officer and a reserve officer, before one of the cops chased after him and placed his hand on Augusta's shoulder.
