Firefighter Beat Woman? Ian Justin Eulian Assaulted Woman Who Fed Stray Cats

Firefighter beat woman? Ian Justin Eulian, 39, was found guilty of assaulting and beating a woman who was feeding stray cats in his West Adams neighborhood.

Firefighter Eulian was found guilty of one count each of battery with serious bodily injury and assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Eulian claimed the cats the victim was feeding had attacked his dog and were littering his yard, prosecutors said.

He confronted the woman as she sat inside her parked car on Sept. 14, 2013.

Surveillance video showed Eulian lean into the car and yell at the woman, who then threw cat kibble at him.

He then punched the woman twice, pulled her out of her car and hit her again as she fell to the ground unconscious, the release stated.

The surveillance video was played in court during the trial.

Eulian faces up to seven years in state prison when he is sentenced on June 30.

    If the woman was a nuisance he should have called cops. What an imbecile he thinks he can go around assaulting women and get away with it and his mom helps he just ruined his career and is going to prison maybe. He’s a firefighter he is supposed to help people he must have rescued one too many cats and snapped geez!

    Wow, is something else going on with this story? I keep thinking firefighters rescue stray cats too? Why would he beat someone for feeding a hungry cat? I really want to defend this man, but it sure looks like he “over reacted”!
