Critical Mess II
There was trouble during NYC's Critical Mass this weekend too. Via Gawker, watch a cop totally bodyslam a rider to the ground as the ride passes through Times Square. The rider was initially charged with resisting arrest and assaulting an officer for "aiming" his bike at the cop. But we're in the YouTube era and the video seems to tell a different story. It's presently unknown why the cop singled out this particular rider, but the NYPD has stripped him of his badge and gun pending an investigation. The cop may be charged with assault and perjury.
