A group of motorcyclists and ATV riders circled a New York City police officer at a gas station in the Bronx with the intent to harass.
A video of the incident, which appears to be first obtained by New York Daily News, shows the incident after the officer approached the bikers dangerously riding at the gas station.
When the officer approached, one of the riders abandoned his dirt bike. The video shows the riders circling the officer and taunting him as he tried to secure the downed bike.
The rider attempted to run around the officer’s vehicle to try to pick it up the bike but was deterred by the officer.
“Come get it!” the officer yelled during the video.
“The officer was attempting to take the vehicle into possession when the group started to circle their bikes around him,” an NYPD spokeswoman said Wednesday. “One of the individuals attempted to take the bike from the officer at which point the officer took his Taser out.”
According to the New York Daily News, no arrests have been made yet.
