146. Let's see, in the photograph, I see the police vehicle accross the street...
I also see a two lane street, going both ways, with at least two cars on it. The police vehicle is obvious, with the horizontal strip on it. The 4 police officers in the photo look like they are beginning to surround the OP, who appears, himself, to have not moved in the meantime. In relation to the police officers, it looks like the OP is on the sidewalk on the opposite side of the street than the OP, his exact estimates of distance could be off, but by no more than maybe ten feet. And even then, it doesn't matter, he was across a busy street, opposite the cops, and the photo seems to support his story.

If he lied, and he was closer, he would have been hit by a car, at the very least, or, if on the OTHER side of the street, he would have had to run away from the cops before the photo was taken, a risky proposition, in addition to actually having time to turn and take a pretty clear picture, with almost no motion blur due to, let's say, backing away. Not to mention that the police in the photo wouldn't appear to be walking calmly towards him, it looks like, in the photo, they didn't view him as much of a threat.

If the police were truly concerned about their privacy or safety, they would have made an extended perimeter and closed off the street, they didn't do that, obviously, so they had no excuse for what they did to the OP.
