This is a video of an encounter I had with police in the village of Port Dickinson in New York State.

I was "pulled over" while inline skating and told that this activity was illegal under a local ordinance. I have since placed an inquiry with the village code enforcement officer and found that there is no such law.

The officer who pulled me over asked me for ID and I refused to show it. He called two other officers to the scene.

There's lots of discussion about this video on my blog as well (I'd love for the discussion to be all in one place, on the blog):
