(Scroll down for video) Police in China, were threatened by a young boy who was brandishing a metal pipe while they were talking to his grandmother.

The young boy of Chengguan, who was hailed as a hero by many people, was seen on video standing in front of officers with a metal pipe.

The officers backed away, but then took out their cellphones to record the child.

The video, which has since gone viral on the Internet, shows the boy defending his grandmother from police by intimidating them with the long metal pipe.

The young boy reportedly had a problem with officials because they were bothering his grandmother. He got into a threatening stance and screamed “don't touch my grandma, go away.”

The boy eventually threw the pipe at officers. It fell on the floor and nobody was injured.

After dropping the pipe, another officer confronted the boy and ordered him to sit down, but he refused to listen. The boy got up, swung at the officer with his hand while screaming at him. The officer walked away as people laughed.
