An on-duty Baltimore Maryland Transit Administration police officer was knocked unconscious Friday afternoon in West Baltimore, MTO News has confirmed.
In the obtained video the officer is seen asleep, then dazed, and confused as he came out of his slumber.
It's not clear what happened. But some alleged witnesses came forward on social media to claim that the officer confronted a man and started "talking sh*t."
Witnesses claim that after the two argued back-and-forth, the man punched the cop - and with one single punch, put the cop to sleep.
