How to duplicate rows in a table/feature class (modelbuilder)

I am trying to duplicate values from the first row of my table to the other rows. 

This screenshot is showing my first row with values 75, 226 and 86.

I would like to copy these values into other 6 rows and make it look like the one below;

I can do this manually by entering the first value into the field calculator (do it for each fields). However, I am trying to build a model that does it automatically. I am trying to find a tool that takes the value from first row and assigns to the others.

You should look into the Get Field Value tool, and then use the returned value in the field calculator.

import arcpy

table = r'path to table'

with arcpy.da.SearchCursor(table, ['Arsons','Burglaries','Assault']) as cursor:
    for row in cursor:
        if row[0] is not None:
            row0value = row[0]
        if row[1] is not None:
            row1value = row[1]
        if row[2] is not None:
            row2value = row[2]

arcpy.CalculateField_management(table, "Arsons", row0value)
arcpy.CalculateField_management(table, "Burglaries", row1value)
arcpy.CalculateField_management(table, "Assault", row2value)‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

This is assuming all data in the table is Null except for the value wanting to be copied.  I haven't tested it.
