An officer of the Arad Police was admitted to the Timisoara County Hospital with serious injuries, after he was savagely beaten by three kick-boxers. According to Mediafax, while he was off duty, the officer (31) tried to appease a conflict that erupted during a wedding party at the Neptun sporting complex of Arad. “The policeman did not intervene physically, only verbally, but he was assaulted by three young men that were later revealed as members of a kickboxing club,” said Camelia Tuduce, spokeswoman of the Arad Police. The severe beating sent the officer into 1st degree coma, with brain hematoma and extensive internal trauma. The three sportsmen were allowed to stay free during the investigation.
