After appearing in a promo video for Barstool Sports’ “Rough N Rowdy,” a part-time police officer has resigned from his post.
Former Campbell police officer Ryan Young, set to fight in an upcoming Barstool amateur boxing match, was seen in the video performing his duties while the Barstool crew films him. In the video, he restrains a Barstool personality and appears to use a stun gun device on the man (which was confirmed fake). According to Police Chief Dennis Puskharcik, he allowed Young to be interviewed but not go on calls or use the stun device.
It’s a shame Young had to resign, but he probably should have executed better judgment. However, if he got clearance to shoot what was shot, it’s a shame he lost his job.
