Police in New York have reportedly stripped an officer of his gun and badge after a videotape surfaced showing him shoving a bicyclist to the ground last week.
 
Patrick Pogan of the Midtown South police precinct is being investigated after he allegedly pushed a cyclist during a demonstration on Friday. 
 
Christopher Long was riding through Times Square as a part of a monthly bike ride demonstration called Critical Mass when the officer appeared to approach him and shove him to the ground.
 
The bicyclist was arrested and accused of riding his bike into the officer, but the video posted on YouTube tells a different story as Officer Pogan is shown lurching toward the bike. The Associated Press video report described the officer’s actions as “bodyslamming” the cyclist.
