    As rare as it may seem, in this case the Officer was actually shown to be defending himself. The off duty officer was attacked and he had to defend himslef. Weird thing is he was cleared by internal affairs and Burbank PD. And, the attacker confessed to attacking and apologized. Now, it is the Burbank City Attorney still pursuing this matter, against the advice of the civilian attorneys, the Glendale PD and Internal Affairs, and even the Burbank PD. What is his deal?
