Patric: The Police Were Violent, Not Me

Actor JASON PATRIC has launched a blistering counterattack on the police officers who apprehended him on charges of public intoxication and resisting arrest, claiming he was assaulted without motive.

The Hollywood star - who was arrested last Monday (29MAR04) in Austin, Texas following the San Antonio premiere of his new movie THE ALAMO - has accused cops of striking him across the neck, simply because he was amused at the site of a policeman attempting to control traffic on his bicycle.

Recalling his reaction to the cycling cop, Patric says, "Next thing I know he hits me and knocks me to the ground. He hit me in the back of the neck."

Police claim Patric was publicly intoxicated and then resisted arrest, but the LOST BOYS star insists, "I did neither and all that is going to come out."

Following his arrest, Patric was taken to the TRAVIS COUNTY JAIL and released five hours later.

The screen hunk's publicist MICHELLE BEGA maintained at the time, "(Patric) believes he has done nothing wrong. He hopes for a rapid resolution to clear his name."
