CORVALLIS, Ore. — The arrest of an Oregon State University student on Oct. 13 is sparking accusations of excessive force and racial profiling.

Body camera footage of the incident was released by Oregon State Police. One of the officers in the video is an OSP trooper assigned to work at Oregon State University, according to the state police agency. The other officer is employed by the Corvallis Police Department.

Trooper Kelly Katsikis said he stopped 21-year-old Genesis Hansen because she was riding her bicycle on the wrong side of the street. He asked for identification, but she refused to comply.

According to the American Civil Liberties Union, Oregon state law does not require pedestrians to carry identification with them or show ID when stopped by law enforcement, though "police may detain you until they establish your identity."

...

“Let me be clear,” said Oregon State University President Ed Ray in a statement to the campus community. “This matter is sufficiently troubling that unless its resolution is satisfactory to OSU, we will reassess the value of continuing a campus law enforcement service agreement with Oregon State Police."

“The bottom line, to me, a student was riding her bicycle on the wrong side of the street, and it ends up with the student in handcuffs on the ground. Somebody has to tell me how this makes any kind of sense, regardless of who was involved,” Ray told the board.
