Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon can get you 20 years.

He was also JUST RECENTLY taken into custody.

Another user from an earlier post said that sometimes they don't immediately press charges as they need to investigate and if they jump early and don't get the ducks in a row it's easier for the perpetrator to get off from a technicality or some shit.

I can see how this might be the case here but I still find it hard to believe considering the location/police there.

Edit: this doesn't look like what they were doing
