Fort Worth officer lectures local bikers

Posted: Updated:

Local sport bikers had a strange and they say unprovoked run-in with a Fort Worth police officer last Wednesday.

The officer did not arrest or ticket the about 10 guys on sport bikes, all a part of the One Nation Motorcycle Club - he only lectured them.

Everything was recorded on Keith Holliday's helmet camera.

The officer started out by talking about their speed and the recent, violent confrontation between some bikers in New York.

"This crap has made the news. It's been on TV and stuff," he told the local bikers. "Slamming a helmet inside some guys windshield and pulling him out."

The officer, who has not been identified by the Fort Worth Police Department, seemed to go from rebuking the riders, to egging them on.

"Why you gotta pick on me?" He asked. "Here's your chance - bust out my windshield, slam me up and down the ground. Don't wanna do that - not in your best interest - but guess what, there are video cameras everywhere."

Riders who were there say they were confused by the exchange.

"I didn't know what to think. I just stood there - shook my head, yes, no," Holliday said. "I was just surprised that it was actually happening that way."

Jonathan Polack, another member of the One Nation Club who was there that night, says they weren't speeding, popping wheelies or driving recklessly.

Polack says his group mostly rides for charities like Toys for Tots.

"We're all hard working. We've got presidents of companies, we got firefighters - everything," Polack said. 'We're all just good people."

The Fort Worth Police Department says it plans to look at the video and decide how it wants to respond.
