JOHN HAAFF. ENGAGED OFFICERS IN SOME FISTICUFFS.
John Haaff must have been born with Haaff a brain because he has no common sense. The cops fight back. They might even shoot you, but in this case they just gave Haaff the Mike Tyson treatment–a good old fashioned beating.
One of the comments at the source site claims that Haaff is an amateur MMA fighter, so he’s used to black eyes I suppose.
A Marrero man who resisted arrest following a scuffle with a roommate put a Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy into a chokehold, almost causing the officer to black out, according to authorities.
John Haaff, 29, was booked with second-degree battery, battery of a police officer with injury and two counts of resisting police by force or violence, said Lt. Jason Rivarde, spokesman for the department.

The deputies were dispatched to Haaff’s residence in the 1100 block of Francis Street in Marrero just after 7 p.m. Saturday (Nov. 25) after the department received a report of a fight, Sheriff’s Office reports said.
Two deputies arrived and tried to take Haaff into custody for allegedly hitting his roommate. But Haaff slapped one deputy and punched the other in the face, the arrest report said.
Haaff is then accused of putting one of the deputies in a chokehold, cutting off the officer’s airway. The deputy almost lost consciousness, Rivarde said.
During the struggle, the two first-responding deputies hit their emergency buttons, summoning help. Another deputy got to the house and spotted his colleague in the headlock. The officer said the deputy’s eyes were half-closed, and he wasn’t sure whether the deputy was still breathing, according to the report.
The newly-arrived deputy began hitting Haaff in the face to break the hold. Once Haaff let go, he continued to struggle with the deputies. The officers used a Taser and eventually took Haaff into custody.
The first two deputies to respond to the house were taken to West Jefferson Hospital in Marrero where they were treated and released, the arrest report said.
Haaff was taken to University Medical Center in New Orleans for treatment of his injuries. He was then booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna.
Haaff was still being held there Monday in lieu of a $30,000 bond.
The legal system doesn’t like people who attack cops, especially trained fighters. John Haaff is going to do some time in prison.
