An Oakland, California-area transit police officer was captured on video forcing an unruly man into a heavy-duty glass window, which shattered, during an arrest at a passenger station.
The video, posted on YouTube, shows an unidentified Bay Area Rapid Transit officer in a scuffle with a man whom authorities identified as Michael Joseph Gibson, 37, of San Leandro, California.
Gibson, who appears disgruntled and gesturing while on a train at the West Oakland Station, is pulled off the train by an officer, who has the man in an arm grip.
The officer forcibly walks the man toward the station wall, which is topped by large windows, and one window shatters as the officer appears to force the man against it. It was unclear exactly what caused the glass to break.
