MSP cyclist taser case verdict

You all know the story: Minneapolis Airport Barney got upset about a local who biked home from the airport in Minneapolis. Rather than obey an unlawful order, Stephan Orsak continued biking (legally) on the airport access road. The police restrained, tased, and arrested Orsak.

Orsak's jury trial concluded last week where he was found guilty of only one of the six counts against him. Orsak plans to appeal that finding in which he is guilty of "Failure to Comply with a Lawful Order."

  1. I was hoping all would be dropped but this is good too. One word: counter-sue (or is that two words?)
