Police said multiple officers were injured and one was struck in the head with a baseball bat, cracking his helmet.

KOMO reports people were arrested for on charges including resisting arrest, propesrty destruction and refusing to disperse.

In a statement, the police also said they were aware of a video circulating on social media that “apparently shows an SPD bike officer’s bike rolling over the head of an individual laying in the street,” the department said. “This matter will be referred to the Office of Professional Accountability for further investigation.”
