Bicyclists pull driver out of car in Koreatown confrontation captured on video

- An investigation was underway Friday into a traffic confrontation between a group of bicyclists and a motorist in the Koreatown area.

The incident occurred about 10:30 p.m. Thursday in the area of Hobart Boulevard and Third Street, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.

Some members of a group of about 50-60 bicyclists were riding through the intersection on a green light when it turned red, said LAPD Officer Norma Eisenman. Some of the other bicyclists then entered the intersection on the red light, which was an apparent traffic violation, she said.

A car then entered the intersection legally on the green light, and slightly bumped one of the bicyclists, according to Eisenman. That's when other bicyclists pulled the motorist from the vehicle and shoved him onto the street in a confrontation that was captured on video.

Police took a battery report and also took a traffic report, but no one was arrested or cited, pending further investigation, she said.

Portions of this video are for restricted use in the Los Angeles area.
