Cop PWNS Biker in Times Square

A Critical Mass bicyclist was attacked by a police officer in Times Square.  This is citizen jouranlism at its best.  The Police lays the smack down without any reason.  That cop can say hello to a life full of office work.  He should start calling himself Pryzbylewski, aka Prez.  Lt. Daniels from “The Wire” can’t help that guy stay off paper work for the rest of his career.

From Gothamist:

A representative for TIMES UP! tells us that the cyclist in this video was arrested, held for 26 hours, and charged with attempted assault and resisting arrest. One other cyclist was ticketed Friday night for riding outside the bike lane, which is not actually illegal and often necessary, considering how popular bike lanes are for double parking.

UPDATE: MyFoxNY has it that the police officer in the video – 22-year-old Patrick Pogan – has been stripped of his badge and gun and the NYPD has “placed the officer on desk duty pending the outcome of a department investigation.” The cyclist, Christopher Long, has not commented, but his lawyer said, “The video speaks for itself.
