Man assaults Army officer at Walmart

This is a bizarre one... Last week in Albany, New York, police arrested a man for assaulting a member of the U.S. Armed Forces inside a Walmart: Army Captain assaulted at Wal-Mart.

On Thursday, 47-year-old Yiqiang Wu starting yelling at a uniformed U.S. Army Captain at the Walmart checkout register, making derogatory statements about the United States and his service to the country. He then struck him several time in the face. A surveillance camera caught video of the attack:

Wu was arrested at the scene and charged with assault as a hate crime. What the hell was that all about? It would seem that Wu suffers from mental illness -- he claims he did it because he had a headache and because the captain assaulted him first (the video shows that this is not the case).
