Probably not the smartest move by Marquise Bryant.
The question begs was there something that made him feel like his life was in danger? I am not condoning pulling your gun on an officer, but we know in Florida sometimes they shot first and ask questions later.
The suspect — 18-year-old Marquise Bryant — was confronted by an officer in Fort Myers, FL for loitering around 2:30 AM.
During the incident, the cop says Bryant reached for his right front pocket — even after the cop told him to put his hands up.
The cop says Bryant continued to go for the pocket … and a fight broke out between the two — with Bryant allegedly pulling out a gun at one point.
But the officer was able to click a button that released his police dog Bala from the cop car — and Bala bit Bryant on his right thigh.
Luckily no one was shot and Bryant has been charged with assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and carrying a concealed weapon.
Bryant a running back had committed to University of South Florida.
