A SUSPECT wielding a stick has been filmed pretending he's been tasered and faking his collapse before attacking cops.
The man was reportedly threatening people inside a business in northeast Atlanta with the stick before officers arrived on the scene.
A DeKalb County police officer arrived was called to the 3000 block of North Druid Hills at around 4pm on Friday.
When the officer arrived, he found a man in his early 30s who was waving a large stick, FOX 5 reports.
According to DeKalb County police, as the officer tried to detain the man, the suspect hit him in the face and head multiple times.
In footage of the incident the man appears to clutch his chest as he falls to the ground seemingly from the officer's taser.
However, shortly after when the officer approaches the man he leaps up and catches the cop off guard.
The unidentified man lunges at the officer and repeatedly hits him over the head.
The attack led the officer to have "numerous" cuts, officials said.
The suspect then fled out the door but was quickly apprehended and charged with aggravated assault against an officer and felony obstruction.
The injured officer was treated at a nearby hospital and has since been released.
He is said to be recovering after the ordeal.
Officials have not released the identities of the officer or the suspect involved.
It's not the first time a suspect has faked an injury to get out trouble.
A suspected pervert was caught on camera faking a heart attack after being caught taking snaps of young women on a train.
The incident took place in Buenos Aires when several passengers claimed the unnamed man was secretly taking photos of a young lady.
