I think that is exactly right.
The savage pummeling, and this...

I'm reminded of a talk on police brutality that a police instructor once gave. Some of these guys get it in their head, to paraphrase, "How DARE he defy me when I'm in uniform?"
This guy has given in to that impulse, seems to me, and acted like he thinks he is the law.
