Redmond Police Department has received requests for details around a video taken in January of our Bike Officers arresting a male subject. The Department published the details both in our news blotter and in a City news release in January. Due to the renewed interest in the video online, RPD is sharing the information again for clarity and context.

On May 14, charges for Possession of a Controlled Substance (RCW 69.50.4013) were filed on the subject in the video after lab test results confirmed the two grams of mushrooms found in his possession were psilocin or psilocybin. He was also charged with Obstructing a Law Enforcement Officer (RCW 9A.76.020).

From our police blotter, RPD Crime Reports 1/14/19 to 1/20/19:

January 16, 2019

  • Time: 16:40
  • Type: Arrest
  • Location: 16100 block of NE 83rd
  • Case Number: 19-000304

A 20-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of Obstructing after he jaywalked, refused to stop when directed to do so by police and then was uncooperative when contacted. Officers saw the man skateboard diagonally across an intersection and when directed to stop he made eye contact and then kept skating away. The two bike officers followed and continued to shout "Stop, Police!" but the subject ignored police orders. The subject was detained and placed in handcuffs. During the arrest police searched his backpack and found illegal drugs, a ledger and more than $500. He was booked into jail for Obstructing and further drug charges are pending.

Redmond, WA The City of Redmond Police department has received numerous inquiries regarding an arrest of a 20-year-old male made on Wednesday, January 16, at approximately 4:40 p.m., by two Redmond Police Department Bike Officers. Officers observed a jaywalking violation at the 16100 block of NE 83, in Downtown Redmond, and attempted to contact the subject to issue a warning or possibly a citation. The subject made eye contact with the officers, then continued to skateboard away from them. The officers followed and continued to shout "Stop" and "Police" at the male. When they caught up to the male, he continued to be uncooperative and was placed under arrest for Obstructing a Law Enforcement Officer. The 20-year-old male was found to be in possession of marijuana, psilocybin mushrooms, a ledger, and more than five-hundred dollars in cash. The drugs, money, and ledger were booked into evidence. The drug offenses are being investigated, and the suspected drugs were submitted for lab testing.

The Redmond Bike Team officers regularly patrol the downtown area of Redmond, enforcing traffic and pedestrian violations and responding to calls for service. The City takes any complaints against our officers seriously. We have reviewed the video that has been posted online, investigated the arrest, and have found no wrongdoing by the arresting officers. The Redmond Police Department does not arrest people in Redmond for jaywalking, but does arrest individuals who are obstructing.
