Online Video Helps Free a Man

Charges have been dropped against a New York man alleged to have assaulted a New York City police officer in July. The incident between the defendant, Christopher Long, and the police officer was captured on amateur video and later posted on the Internet. In the video, Long appears to have been tackled off of his bicycle after showing no aggression toward the officer. The officer has since been re-assigned to desk duty, while Mr. Long states that he’s “relieved…to go back to normalcy.”
