it's too bad the video came out before the trial...
we could have gotten the cop for being an asshole AND lying about it.
Deponent states that deponent observed the defendant obstructing vehicular traffic by riding defendant's bicycle in the center lane of traffic while traveling southbound on 7th Avenue at the above-named location and while weaving defendant's bicycle in and out of the center lane of traffic, thereby forcing multiple vehicles to stop abruptly or change their direction in order to avoid hitting the defendant. Deponent further states that the defendant's above-described conduct caused public disturbance and inconvenience in that it caused disruption of the normal flow of vehicular traffic. Deponent further states that upon instructing the defendant to cease the above-described conduct, the defendant steered the defendant's bicycle in the direction of deponent and drove defendant's bicycle directly into deponent's body, causing deponent to fall to the ground and causing deponent to suffer lacerations on deponent's forearms.
the cop was stripped of his badge, though, yes?
