NYDailyNews A woman has been charged with assault after she allegedly delivered what a police report describes as “Karate Kid crane kick” to one officer. The ordeal began Monday when two Austin police in civilian clothes were driving down the road in their cruiser and pulled up to a stop sign. A woman identified as 22-year-old Sarah Pierce was walking along the curb and screamed, “What are you looking at?” and “threw her hands up in the air,” police said. “I’m not looking at you,” one cop replied as she started rolling up the window. Not satisfied, Pierce started screaming and banging on the cruiser’s windows. Things got really crazy when one officer exited the vehicle and approached her. She began flailing her arms and, according to the report, delivered a “Karate Kid crane kick.” The officers grabbed the kicker and subdued her as she tried resisting arrest. “Sarah was now reasonably aware both officers were the police yet she still resisted arrest by attempting to get up,” according to the report. “Sarah stated she was just having a bad day and was upset that the officer was looking at her.” Pierce was taken to the Travis County jail and booked on charges of third-degree felony assault on a public servant and misdemeanor resisting arrest. She is being held on $10,000 bond, according to the jail.
I hate to break it to all the Daniel-San wannabes out there, but the Karate Kid crane kick is a terrible technique which would never work in an actual fight, and even worse the second you set up for it your opponent knows it’s coming because everyone on earth has seen Karate Kid. Never throw the crane kick, but especially never throw the crane kick at police officers, you will get arrested every time as Sarah Pierce learned the hard way. I loved Sarah Pierce’s mugshot though, she looks crazy enough to throw a crane kick at cops as she looks out of the corner of her eyes, it looks like she is about to yell “What are you looking at?” again at somebody outside of the shot.
