Phoenix Jones, Midnight Jack, Red Falcon, Bishop and Westlake Drake are on a routine patrol of the University District when they come across a man yelling at a car. The suspect, out side of the car in the orange shirt, starts punching the window of the car scaring the passengers of the vehicle. Phoenix steps in, stops the assault while Red calls 911.
The suspect in orange then changes his target to Phoenix and begins using racial slurs. After 8 minutes of trying to de-escalate the situation the cops arrive (this is a the 2:32 mark of your condensed video). Phoenix Jones tells the officer that he would like to leave and would like a police escort to the team's car. The cop agrees and then the suspect in orange says "F**k you ni**er! I'll bring this to your house!"
At this point Phoenix agrees to mutual combat, the two shake hands and the fight commences. Right before Phoenix knocks out the suspect in orange, the suspect says "You know you don't want none of this". His friends confuse this with him trying to stop the fight and begin another verbal attack on Phoenix.
The police officers move in and tell the suspect's friends that the suspect agreed to fight and in Washington that is legal but if either of them touch Phoenix without consent they will be arrested for assault. With the suspect in orange still unconscious Phoenix and his team continue patrol.
"I RESPECT EVERYONE'S RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH. THE ONLY REASON I CONSENTED TO A FIGHT WAS BECAUSE HE SAID HE WOULD COME TO MY HOUSE. I TAKE MY FAMILY'S SAFETY VERY SERIOUSLY."
On the way home Phoenix was contacted by 911 who said the original victims the man in orange had assaulted would like to press charges. Phoenix agreed to give them the video of their assault and not to play it for the public until the Seattle police could review it.
**UPDATE** Phoenix Jones wants to remind you that while this video is funny, entertaining, and justified, it is most importantly legal: Seattle Municipal Code 12A.06.025.
"My goal is to keep the people safe and to uphold the law. That is why I called the official authorities to report the crime and then later, under the SPD's supervision, engaged in legal mutual combat. I spend time studying the laws applicable to my nightly activities in addition to the time I spend in the gym training in combat." - PJ
