Fox news has an update on this, saying the video from the officers dash cam showed bikes wheelying past him, refusing to get over or slow or stop. It also says it is law that they pull into the next lane available. So as usual we see only one small section of video and must make judgement on it. I have not seen the full video, so will say I'm not sure if it would change my mind or not. So In short, the bikers activity caught on dashcam video prior to the stop dictated the officers behavior during the stop.
From the Article:
Choy said the bikers have to admit they broke the law to complain that the officer's pepper spray put them in danger.
"Each of these witnesses would have to be afforded an attorney and the attorney would advise them whether or not it's worth it to them to incriminate themselves in order to testify against the officer," he said.
