According to the article, "he was confronted by two uniformed cops who threatened to give him a ticket but let him go. Cartagena encountered the cops again inside the deli and exchanged testy words, leading the officers to take him into custody"
You can hardly blame the cops for threatening to give him a ticket for riding on the sidewalk. Anyway, then they let him go. What's the problem?
The question is what happened afterwords. In general, I think, mouthing off to cops is a kinda dumb.
