Arrested for Punching Cop at OWS Protests - How will this affect my ibanking prospects?IB
So I showed up to the OWS protests at UC Davis. One of my friends was dragged around by campus cops and I ran over telling them to stop because she looked like she couldn't breathe. Another cop mistook me for a protester and proceeded to tell me to leave and i refused. He then proceeded to pull out pepper spray and hand cuffs and told me to put my hands on the ground. I told him to go fuck himself (and some other expletives I dont remember). During this time my friend was writhing around on the ground after having been sprayed and in an attempt to control an already-sprayed victim, they sprayed her some more. This time the other cop sprayed me as well.
That shit gives you a burning sensation so, already enraged as I was, I struck the cop trying to arrest me, in the face. Not expecting this, he looked surprised as did the other cops around us. Then I proceeded to punch him at least 8 more times with both fists before getting tackled be the other 2 cops. The cop I hit ended up with a small bloody cut on his lip.
I was arrested on assault charges but released on bail for a bit.
NOW, the question is, how would this affect my job placement? I have a 3.8 GPA at UC Davis with 3 i-banking internships already (one with JP Morgan Los Angeles, one at UBS New York and one summer analyst position with a top boutique in LA). My SATs were both in the 99th percentile and I'm graduating in May.
i know i'll have explaining to do but would my resume be an automatic ding? Most likely I'll have to apply after doing a bit of jail time.
