I think, as PC Stout seems to be a traffic officer he really should know what laws he is arresting/fining somebody under. Admittedly this guy was just being a d**k to annoy the officer, but how the officer reacted was out of order, that could be classed as assault, its probably why the officer didn't pursue.

>>I couldn't possibly disagree more. This man was well within his rights to question the constable. Maybe the cop should actually read and understand the laws he is supposed to be enforcing.<<

Why dont you go and try to remember the thousands of laws out there, then recite them perfectly from memory. Oh that's right, not everyone can be Jesus like this rider expects the cop to be.

Also, how was the cop in the wrong at all? He simply told the guy "I saw you run a red light". 90% of the video was him being given a difficult time by the rider.

awesome, but everything is more laid back in when said in that accent. i'd be less likely to react also if i talked in such a way

OK someone has to learn the difference between standing up for your rights and being difficult with the authorities. sure, the officer was somewhat in the wrong, but that guy didnt make the situation any better, and just tried to start something, knowing he could get some footage.

Flaming cyclists are a pain in the arse. They don't pay road tax and assume they have every right on the road. Copper was a wanker but the guy with camera even more of a wanker. I would gladly run all of them over.

I guess I come from the old school where this dick would have gotten his ass arrested. Sorry, but in the States, remember you can be detained for anything.

lol. if he's right about the law then he's right about the law. being a cop does NOT mean you are allowed to break the law. unless you're in the States where your cops are becoming fascists and american citizens seem to be ok with that.

@ Paperduck:

No, that is untrue. Some states have different rules, but generally the police cannot force you to ID yourself.

@Samsquanch: Your arguments are a welcomed contradiction to the main view on policing and handlers of law, but are invalid as you live in Canada. Canada rules.

I was stopped in Louisiana for doing 95mph in a 55 zone, because I was courteous to the officer, I never admitted guilt (he asked why I was stopped, and I said, "I guess I was going a little fast, eh?"). I chatted with him, and remained calm, and collected in the situation, and he remained very polite with me, and let me go with a warning.

You can contest that a fine will cause a personal hardship on you and your family. Generally...and again, if you're polite, and not arrogant, the court will either dismiss the case, or reduce the sentence.
I was fined for driving with expired plates. I nodded at the officer, and didn't make any indication that I knew the plates were expired. "I'm giving you a ticket for expired plates."
"Ok. Thank-you for the notification. I will ensure that the plates will be renewed in the immediate future."
Then, I contested it, plead guilty with an excuse (how could I plead innocent? I had expired plates. It was evident.)
Told the JP I was guilty with an excuse, then told him about the hardships my family faced with my grandmother who had cancer.
He found me guilty, but suspended the sentence. I paid nothing. I was calm with the officer, and the JP, and stated my case to the appropriate level.

Under US law, you are obligated to provide your legal name and address to a law enforcement officer, even if you're just *walking* around doing nothing wrong. Refusing is sufficient to get you arrested.

I'm not a violent man, but I would take the misdemeanor and small fine to uppercut this annoying cyclist.

I am an experienced driver, as well as an active cyclist.

On the radio and in the newspapers drivers and cyclists are always at each other's throats. "They do that, you did this, bla bla bla.

But, like with most things in the media, when you put down the newspaper - and go out in REALITY people are always smiling, letting each other pass, waving and so on.

weirdly enough i got pulled over in a bike for breaking the speed limit. I had to attend a "speed awareness course" and i didn't have a drivers licence to have points put on.

I think the lesson to be learned here is that (aside from all the learned and intelligent contributions thus far), it's sometimes worth a shot just to test the endurance and perseverance of any given individual law-enforcement officer.. sometimes, they're just as easily led onto the path of least-resistance as the rest of us.

Here is a link to the guys blog.

It's funny he starts of apologizing to the officer. Then admits he was acting like a rebellious child. A good start but he then goes on to defend his actions and kind of ignore all that stuff about him breaking the law (allegedly). Would still like to hear if he ever got a ticket, but I didn't see any info about that. Dangerous cyclists that potentially ruin innocent peoples lives are a pet peeve of mine. Anyway I guess if you want to follow this case check his blog.
