Police Activity

Info :

In January 2015, Douglas Babbitt was talking on the phone in the driver's seat of his parked van when a police officer asked if an open beer bottle on the ground near the vehicle's front passenger door belonged to him. Babbitt said the beer was not his, nor had he seen who left it in the parking lot in front of the 7-Eleven on East 14th Street. But San Leandro Police Officer Michael Olivera continued to question Babbitt about the beer. Olivera's body camera captured the entire incident in a nearly 12-minute video that shows how the situation escalated and led to the 51-year-old Oakland man briefly lying unconscious on the ground. Babbitt was arrested and charged with resisting a police officer, driving under the influence of alcohol and multiple weapons violations.
