As officers on bikes moved forward, one officer who was walking beside his bike can be seen rolling the bike over the head or neck of the person lying in the street.

The video shows both potential violations of Seattle Police Department policy as well as possible criminal conduct, the Seattle Office of Police Accountability said.

Dismay over Breonna Taylor spills into America's streets

  Dismay over Breonna Taylor spills into America's streets LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Anger, frustration and sadness over the decision not to charge Kentucky police officers for Breonna Taylor’s death poured into America’s streets as protesters lashed out at a criminal justice system they say is stacked against Black people. Activists, celebrities and everyday Americans have been calling for charges since Taylor, an emergency medical worker, was shot multiple times by white officers who entered her home during a narcotics investigation in March.

In a release announcing the officer being placed on leave, the Seattle Police Department said more than a dozen arrests were made in Wednesday night's protests.

"Individuals were responsible for attacking a business in the area, launching an incendiary device into the East Precinct nearly hitting officers, throwing rocks and bottles at officers, setting multiple fires, and violently striking an SPD officer in the head with a metal baseball bat," the release says.

Previously, Seattle police said in a statement they were aware of a video circulating on social media that “apparently shows an SPD bike officer’s bike rolling over the head of an individual laying in the street,” the department said. “This matter will be referred to the Office of Professional Accountability for further investigation.”

On average, Seattle's Office of Police Accountability fields up to 1,500 complaints about police misconduct each year. In just the first two months since the death of Floyd, which spawned demonstrations in Seattle and across the country, more than 18,000 reports flooded the office.

"It's been all hands on deck," said Andrew Myerberg, director of the office that investigates police misconduct claims.

Driven largely by social media, the public scrutiny of police during local demonstrations has produced waves of reports, Myerberg said, including thousands of complaints addressing the same incident. The image of a child's pained reaction to a burst of pepper spray, for example, generated about 14,000 complaints to the office.
