However, Ari Douglas, a legal observer from the National Lawyers Guild, is just a big fraud.
A snail could have avoided being hit by the slow moving scooter. But, as you can see by the screen caps, he faked the incident.
Different angle. The Cops foot is down, he is stopped, Ari's legs are still pretending to be trapped under the front tire.
His right leg is bent...
His right foot that was moving around freely is now *stuck* up to his shin, even though the bike wasn't moving...amazing.
Nothing trapped under any wheels, and nothing driven over. But he sure is in *pain*...
NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said Douglas' face got scratched up while he was resisting arrest - and that he faked everything else.
"Douglas had repeatedly disregarded lawful orders to get out of the street and onto the sidewalk, and then feigned being run over before kicking over the police scooter," he said.What a fakey Mc. Fakemeyer.
Douglas was charged with resisting arrest, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and other charges, Browne said.
Daily News photographer Joe Marino, who witnessed the confrontation, partly backed the NYPD account.
"The bike definitely hit him," but the officer didn't run him over, he said.
"I saw him sticking his legs under the bike to make it appear he was run over," Marino said of Douglas.
Do you think he will remember to pretend which leg is hurt?
Update: Just saw this post on VerumSerum. He did a play by play, too, and captured the money shot:
Update 2: Speaking of dramaqueens...
NYT Poster Boy of OWS Protests Reveals Self as Bizarre Drama Queen
Update 3: Here is another great play by play, very funny.
Horrific scooter incident, runs over OWS protestor!
"Absolutely surreal. I managed to capture frames of a video of this spectacular scooter crash into an OWS demonstrator (or possibly somebody else). Below is my analysis of that horrific crash that mangled the left foot...no, right foot...well, you be the judge."
And another video here, between :12 and :17 you can see him angling his feet next to the tire. And here is yet another video where you can clearly see he is faking. And an up close and personal look at his way over the top reaction. You would think he was being trampled by an elephant...
What is a normal reaction when your foot is run over by a car?
His reaction is so over the top and obnoxious, that is proof enough he is faking. But, as you can clearly see in all the videos, he is a total fraud.
Even his lawyer said his only injuries were cuts on his face....Gotta love an attorney that defends her client before even speaking to him. And if all of that isn't proof enough, the fact that Keith Olbermann is defending him says it all. Also, the video they show clearly shows Ari faked it, at the 3:18, 3:19 and 3:20 marks.
