Seattle Police are investigating a pair of viral videos appearing to show officers using patrol bikes to force clashes with counter-protesters at a pro-Trump march.
Both incidents were filmed in Seattle on December 7 at the “Mega MAGA” march. Counter-protesters say police unfairly targeted them during the protest.
In the first video, an officer trips over his bike and appears to charge toward the nearest counter-protester, who he tries to detain in an apparent bout of red mist.
In the second, an officer seems to deliberately ride his bike into the back of a counter-protester on the sidewalk, and is heard arresting him and telling him to stop fighting back.
Seattle's Office of Police Accountability is investigating both videos, The Daily Beast reported.
Insider contacted Seattle Police for comment, but is yet to receive a response.
