    Man charged with pushing lit cigarette in bylaw officer's eye

    A West Vancouver motorist has been charged after he allegedly shoved a lit cigarette in the eye of a bylaw officer on Tuesday.

    The force used was enough to extinguish the cigarette in the officer's eye, said police.

    The young male bylaw officer was ticketing a parked car on Marine Drive just before 3 p.m. when the angry motorist returned, said police

    After berating the officer, the 55-year-old man took his lit cigarette and pushed it into the officer's right eye.

    The officer's eyelid was badly burned. There was no other damage to his eye.

    The officer called police as the suspect left the scene. Minutes later, the suspect returned and was promptly arrested by the cops.

    Harding called the attack "bizarre."

    "This bylaw officer is a young person just doing a civic job," said Harding.

    "They aren't out there with pepper spray or weapons. This is just a young man trying to earn a living. That's why, for me, it's additionally despicable," he added.

    "You and I are going to get parking tickets. ... There's a perfectly fine civil process. You just take your lumps and deal with it," he said.

    Harding said the bylaw officer is "clearly upset and, as you can imagine, shaken."

    He was able to make a statement to police shortly after the assault, but did not want to be identified or make a statement to the media. The officer was treated at a clinic and released.

    Harding said there was no indication that drugs or alcohol were a factor.

    Jozef Baksay was charged with assault with a weapon and assault on a peace officer. He is scheduled to reappear in court at a later date.

    In an interview with Global TV, Baksay denied he pushed a cigarette into the bylaw officer's eye, claiming he just threw the cigarette at the parking enforcer. He also claimed he has been given five tickets in ten days for parking close to an intersection.

    You would think he would learn a lesson. I guess not. What a moron.

    Can't say I feel sorry for the 'peace officer'. Prick causes people bad feelings every hour of every day. What goes around comes around. I would have helped put out the fire in his eye though.....

    Well kids, what's this teach you? Get an education or end up being a bylaw officer, which is apparently just a step above ashtray.
    Too sexy for this forum.

    How nice.
    All this over a flipping parking ticket. Get a life, dude, and learn to relax.

    While I dont like parking tickets, this Beksay guy is wound WAY too tight.

    It's good he's entered the system before he kills somebody over something else equally stupid.

    Bylaw guy is not a 'peace officer' with the powers of arrest, search, and USE OF FORCE.
    Put a cigarette anywhere near the face of a sworn peace officer and you get twisted up and taken down properly. Try it sometime.
    Log off and ride.

    Too bad that wasn't the case in this particular incident.
