It has come to our attention that some reporters are misrepresenting a video posted to social media depicting an encounter with Cleveland Police.
A male was taken into custody by Cleveland Police officers after being seen cutting the lock from and taking a bicycle. The officers in the video are both uniformed Cleveland officers in marked vehicles and plain clothes Cleveland Police detectives operating in an unmarked police vehicle. The male was issued a summons and conveyed home by uniformed officers in a marked vehicle.
