A Fort Worth cop was caught on video pepper spraying a group of bikers for no apparent reason. The Trooper has someone pulled over as the bikers drive by and I guess he thought they should have gotten over (even though all the lanes were occupied) so he just maced them as they drove by.

How is this safer for anyone? He could have killed someone easily.

What a friggin dummy. At :25 we see the orange cloud of gas he's spraying generally as they go by.
I have no idea what would possess this guy to do that. He has no lights on, he's busy with another traffic stop, Is that mace? Or maybe a die marker to identify them later? Maybe just, "Slow down!"

Who knows? Stupid is as stupid does.

In the old days he could punch those guys in the face. They'd carry them out on stretchers, you know?

I saw this on local news today. No excuses. He stopped a truck in front of them (they were part of the group). Apparently he was angry because some of the bikers in front were doing tricks on there bikes on the hiway. However the ones in the back who he sprayed were not involved. One of the guys he sprayed had asthma and had to be treated at a hospital.

This man could have caused crashes by the motorcyclists and even their death from following cars. He has been assigned to desk duty. Personally I think he should be on leave without pay.

He is lucky no one was carrying a firearm which if used in self defense, could have shot him full of holes, then it would really be a mess of things.

Or in the old days the bikers would have stopped and stomped some sense into his head.

He was clearly in danger, the perceived threat level reached medium orange which required the immediate use of counter measures....luckily for the officer the counter measures were effective in displacing the gathering crowd and the threat was dissipated....

I love the part where they say "No one's come forward to make a complaint. Should he not have done that?" and shrug and make "who, me?" faces like a NFL tackle who just got caught doing a crack-back.

Uh, guys? He broke about 10 laws. Do your jobs. Complaint not needed. Charge him criminally.

Oh, but wait, that won't happen, because cop. Never mind.

Here in New York State your supposed to get over if an emergency vehicle is using the emergency lane.

Not agreeing with what he did, but if that's the law in Texas too, it could give justification. All of them in that lane where he is spraying would have been fined

Texas move over statute.


(a) On approaching a stationary authorized emergency vehicle using visual signals that meet the requirements of Sections 547.305 and 547.702, an operator, unless otherwise directed by a police officer, shall:

(1) vacate the lane closest to the emergency vehicle when driving on a highway with two or more lanes traveling in the direction of the emergency vehicle; or

(2) slow to a speed not to exceed:

(A) 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit when the posted speed limit is 25 miles per hour or more; or

(B) five miles per hour when the posted speed limit is less than 25 miles per hour.


If it was about the passing a stopped vehicle, he could have given out lots of tickets. They probably only need to slow down to 40 or 50. It didn't look as though they were going really fast.

I think the officer was just being a jerk. I doubt he thought anyone would see or capture his clandestine chemtrail action.

You don't get to assault someone with a chemical in lieu of a traffic court summons.

He did it because he's a jackass. And it's reckless endangerment and assault. At a minimum.

Yeah. There's a lot of "Or" in that statute which basically boils it down to "as long as they were 20 below the limit, they were fine to be in that lane while passing him."

Maybe it's coming up on budget time, and if they don't use all of their pepper spray, they don't get any for the next year.

Exactly what lane were they suppose to move over too?

Shouldn't the cop be charged with several counts of assault and battery at the very least? If it was my decision, I would charge him with an account of attempted murder, at least for all of the bikes in range (due to the fact he was obviously trying to cause them to crash.) "Desk duty"...he should be in jail working on posting bail for several counts of violent crime. In a perfect world, the charges/sentencing guidelines would be double when committed while on duty.
