A police officer who became famous worldwide after a YouTube video showed him shoving a cyclist off his bike seemingly without provocation has been acquitted of assault.
But Patrick Pogan, formerly of the New York Police Department, was found guilty of making a false filing in the case, and now faces up to four years in prison, the New York Times reported Thursday.
In amateur footage of a Critical Mass cycling event in New York City in July of 2008, Pogan can be seen crossing a street and walking into the path of 29-year-old cyclist Christopher Long. Long can be seen swerving to avoid Pogan before Pogan shoves him, causing Long to fall off his bicycle and into a nearby crowd.

woah easy now. So he says something you dont like and you call him a retard? Do the words kettle and pot mean anything to you?
Now on topic: Really amazing. From reading the OP is sure seems like the brought up every piece of dirt that could be found against this kid. I really do not see how him smoking weed or this incident in which he caused the death of another person has anything at all to do with what his arrest was about. The guy on the bike was arrested for assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest etc etc and clearly the video shows a totally different tale.
What is worse is now the bike guy is being charged for filing a false report against the officer. Just unbelievable.
