“Videos showing a San Francisco police officer bumping into a skateboarder who was speeding down a street by Dolores Park, sending the young man crashing into a squad car, were raising questions Wednesday about the officer’s intentions.

Police officials said the department is investigating the incident, which happened during an informal skateboarding competition Tuesday night that drew dozens of officers to Dolores Street on the east side of the park, resulting in confrontations between police and a large group of skaters and onlookers.

In two videos posted on social media, the officer appeared to put his left shoulder or arm in the path of the skateboarder, who was riding downhill.

The skateboarder collided with the officer and veered a few feet to the right, slamming into and over the front of the patrol car — which had been parked in the street to block it — and falling to the pavement, grabbing his right leg in pain.”
