Here's the story behind this little altercation:
BART police Cmdr. Daniel Hartwig says officers responding to a report of a disturbance around 5:40 p.m. Saturday at the West Oakland station found a man police identified as Michael Joseph Gibson, who appeared to be intoxicated, challenging others to fight and yelling racial slurs.
Hartwig says when an officer tried to take the 37-year-old Gibson into custody, a window in the train station shattered, injuring both the suspect and the officer. Hartwig says the officer suffered several lacerations and a concussion. The officer has been treated and released.
Hartwig says the suspect was treated for "minor lacerations" and arrested on suspicion of battery on an officer, resisting an officer and other charges.
Granted, I'm on the officer's side on this -- someone needed to escort that douche bag off the train in the most offensive way possible -- but I didn't see anything in the video to indicate he suffered a concussion. I don't know, maybe it's one of those things where if you think about it hard enough it will actually happen. Then again it's not exactly out of the realm of possibility for a cop to make some shit up in order to pad the hell out of his report.
