EXCLUSIVE: Three Miami Beach cops injured in fight with homeless man

By: Andy Slater

A violent outburst by a homeless man during a routine arrest ended with two cops in the hospital.

According to the exclusively-obtained police report, Brian Webb, 27, was kicked out of Dewey's Tavern in Miami Beach early Wednesday morning. The bartender claims when she refused to serve Webb because he was drunk, he threatened to punch other customers and rape her. 

Cops arrived and took Webb to the Miami Beach police station. When police attempted to search him before putting him in a holding cell, that's when Webb allegedly turned violent.

One officer said he was elbowed in his side multiple times and had to take to Webb to the ground. Two other officers tried to grab Webb, but he was kicking and punching them, the report says. 

Police say they were telling Webb to stop, but he refused, and kept fighting. 

Eventually, cops were able to gain control when one of the officer's punched him in the face, knocking him unconscious. At that point, two different officers tried to put Webb in a transport van, but he wasn't done yet. Webb allegedly kicked both officers in their legs.

When it was all done, at least three officers were injured. Two of them went to Mt. Sinai Medical Center. The arrest report says a female officer had a broken hand.

Paramedics tried to help out Webb, but couldn't because he was being too violent. 

Webb remains behind bars on $10,500 bond. He's facing four counts of battery on an officer and three counts of resisting arrest with violence.
