'I'm Gonna Dump Ya': King County Sheriff Detective Pulls Gun on Biker (Video)
“The King Co. Sheriff suspended a veteran detective after watching a helmet-cam video that appeared to show one of his detectives pointing a gun and grabbing a motorcyclist during a misdemeanor traffic stop.
Alex Randall, the motorcyclist who posted the video on YouTube and Reddit, says the plain-clothed detective approached him on foot while pointing a pistol, and he says the detective did not identify himself, or show his badge. In the video, Randall says he stops at a red light at NE 145th Street and 5th Avenue NE, and the detective is seen on Randall's helmet cam pointing the gun while asking, "How you doing?"
The detective told Randall he was driving his motorcycle recklessly, putting people in danger, Randall said. "I turned and looked, and he's there with a gun," Randall said. "I was totally unprepared for someone to be standing right next to me on the street like that." Another driver sent KIRO-7's Gary Horcher a video appearing to show a reverse angle, with Randall with his hands up while the gun was pointed at him. "It was hands up, don't shoot," Randall said. "That's all I could think of for the first 30 seconds, was just don't get shot!”
