The NYPD officer who forcefully knocked a man off of his bicycle during a Critical Mass ride in Times Square this past summer has been indicted by a grand jury. The indictment will be unsealed in an upcoming hearing at the State Supreme Court in Manhattan. It’s likely that prosecutors are seeking felony charges for filing false records in the police report, as well as at least one misdemeanor count of assault.
Officer Patrick Pogan claimed cyclist, Christopeher Long, ran into him during an NYC Critical Mass ride, but as the above video shows, he clearly went out of his way to assault the bike rider. Officer Pogan subsequently arrested Long on charges of attempted assault, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest, but the charges against Mr. Long were dropped after the video went public on YouTube.
