California Cops Arrest Man for Biking on Sidewalk,

A pint-sized California cop was so determined to cite a man for riding his bicycle on the sidewalk that she attempted to tackle the man when he refused to provide his identification, telling her he had done nothing illegal.

The man resisted at first, not violently, and then placed his hands behind his back when the Merced police officer ordered him to do so, allowing the officer who was half his size to handcuff him.

That was when a male Merced officer came rushing in, grabbing the man’s neck with his gloved hands, shoving the man against a glass door, then ordering to “turn around” when it was physically impossible for him to turn around.

The male cop continued to escalate the situation even after the man was handcuffed, forcing him down on the ground, then kicking his legs from beneath him.

The incident was being recorded by a witness who was trying to get all parties to deescalate the situation, which, of course, meant he was assaulted and arrested for recording by what appears to be a third cop rushing onto the scene.

The video was posted to [__YouTube__](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLa7oMlzFig) on May 3. According to the description:

Judging by the Instagram usernames left in the description, the videographer is named Bryce Alan and the man on the bike is Marquez Harris, who also happens to be the name of a man who once played football for the local college, but that [__man is listed at 245 pounds__](http://www.hudl.com/athlete/4113059/marquez-harris), which is much heavier than the man on the bicycle appears.

Alan is being charged with Penal Code 148, which is California’s contempt of cop law, which alleges that he was resisting, delaying, or disrupting a public officer.

That charge is more appropriate for the guy on the bicycle, who received two misdemeanors and one felony charge, which means they are probably accusing him of assaulting the officer, but that does not appear to be the case.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
