Police officer in YouTube video placed on paid leave [View all]



Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- An officer with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is now on paid administrative leave, after being recorded during a traffic stop.

The YouTube video, which has gotten thousands of views, shows the officer react angrily after rear-ending a motorcycle. It happened near Harmon Avenue and Koval Lane.

The officer will be on paid administrative leave until LVMPD completes an internal investigation.

The motorcyclist, John Paul Rosario, had a video camera attached to his helmet.

Rosario was never issued a ticket by the officer and is glad the police department has taken action. But, he thinks paid administrative leave is pretty generous for what he describes as "uncalled for aggression by an officer."
