It doesn't sound like he hit the cops, it's just he pulled it out to warn them to not go into his home which he has a right to say and he has a right to protect his property from intruders. Cops are not above the law even though they may try to circumvent situations and make it seem like a legit reason to come inside, if the owner has done nothing wrong then he can refuse entry.
