At 1:30 a.m., the man who recorded the incident, Joey Wieser, said that roughly 300 protesters remained in an area once home to what was known as the city's “Capital Hill organized protest zone,” or CHOP. The commune-like area was occupied by protesters after police abandoned the East Precinct in early June and it remained there until July 1, when authorities cleared the space under orders from Mayor Jenny Durkan.

In the video, Wieser said that 60 officers in tactical gear began advancing on those who remained on Capitol Hill. Moments later, as several police officers on bikes began riding down the street, an officer can be seen appearing to walk his bike over the head of a person lying on the ground.

“He just ran over his head,” Weiser can be heard shouting. “Oh my God. Oh my God.”
