Occupy Wall Street Legal Observer Arrested After Being Run Over by Police Scooter

The National Lawyers Guild confirmed to TPM that the person depicted in the video below is one of their observers, that he's under arrest and that he's currently in the emergency room being treated for unspecified injuries. 

The description on Youtube reads:

"Shot this [Friday] at 8am, on our way back to the general assembly.

"The Scooter policeman stops when he hooks his victim's foot , then continues to apparently drive over it or around it and finish off the job with the back wheel.

"You can clearly see the officer's conscious will to acknowledge his trapped victim and getting off to fend off the rest who may try to help him. Notice these steel engines' mass is extremely heavy for a middle aged man's ankle's bones. then another officer notices the scooter and pushes it down (thankfully), yet another manages to instead of help the suffering him, finish him off by beating him with a club."
