Cop was being not so smart and let his testosterone get the best of him and he almost paid with his life. What did he think that motorcycle was going to do against that much bigger and HEAVIER ATV??? Exactly nothing.
The guy on ATV is arrested later and he said to the police that it was an accident and that he had no intention to do that on purpose.
The officer said he was following procedure that states he first has to pull his motorcycle next to the running vehicle. This way the suspect cannot claim later he didn’t see the cop ordering him to stop. That was all he remembered due to the head injury. Nerves controlling his right hand were torn from the spine.
He had done thousands of traffic stops without a problem. As most people know they cannot run from a 1200 cc motorbike with a trained driver. After seeing this video it is of course easy to say he should have been more careful.
1. That was on purpose.
2. That cop was an idiot.
