PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh police Chief Cameron McLay says video of an officer waving his baton and angrily ordering teens to disburse after a bus stop dispute shows “no evidence of serious police misconduct.”

The officer was recorded by a reporter from City Paper, an alternative weekly, as he and several others were called to quell the disturbance at a downtown stop about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

At one point, the officer says, “I see you videotaping boy, on your telephone. Get it all, get it all” and also, “Move, move. Videotape all you want, quit causing problems and get out.”

Citizens Police Review Board Executive Director Elizabeth Pittinger says the conduct shown is “excruciatingly unbecoming.”

But the chief says “Training, counseling or discipline will occur as the need is identified during these reviews.”
