Youtube video helps indict cop for tackling cyclistMikey 7 comments
The officer, who claimed on his report that the cyclist had shoved him, has been indicted for falsifying records and could be charged with a misdemeanour assault.
But it's not as simple as it sounds. Even though the video evidence pretty much makes a clear cut case, Officer Pogan's lawyer says:
"My client denies any wrongdoing in this matter...I would have people withhold judgement until all the evidence comes out about the bicyclist’s actions prior to my client taking action."
I'm not sure what imaginary evidence the lawyer could be referring too considering Pogan's report says he reacted to being shoved by the cyclist.
