I guess you are more cautious than President Obama, because before he heard a full transcript he said that the police officer "acted stupidly". He has yet to apologize. Acting "hot-headed" is called "disorderly conduct", especially when you insult the mother of the officer who has the discretion of whether to arrest you or not.
