HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — Authorities say a 60-year-old man who with the help of his adult son beat a Southern California police officer during a bicycle stop has been sentenced to six years in prison.
The Orange County Register reports the officer’s daughter had been on a ride-along with her father and witnessed the beating, which left him unconscious.
Darryl Headrick pleaded guilty Friday to charges including a felony count of assault. He also admitted to an enhancement for inflicting great bodily injury.
The officer stopped 23-year-old Bryce Headrick for a possible alcohol-related violation in 2016. Investigators said Bryce and Darryl Headrick attacked the officer and then left the scene on their bikes.
The younger Headrick pleaded guilty last year and was sentenced to seven years in prison.
