New Orleans, La. - New Orleans police arrest a man they say beat up a victim on Bourbon Street just to prove he wasn't a cop.

Sunday morning, investigators say 22-year-old William Busker was trying to buy drugs in the 300 block of Bourbon.

They say the drug dealer told him to prove he wasn't a cop by robbing someone.

Police say Busker took a victim's wallet and when the victim fought back, they say Busker beat him unconscious and fled.

Officers managed to chase him down. He's booked with armed robbery and second degree battery.
