So give me the alternative? How was this suppose to play out if he was breaking an ordinance? The police were just suppose to say, "We're sorry for bothering you while breaking local laws, we will leave you alone now?" At the point where this video started he wasn't listening, obeying, submitting, or whatever you'd like to call it (I'll call it being a rational adult) to anything the police had to say. What was the alternative outcome in this situation.
Now there have been plenty of videos on BB where police have certainly over stepped their bounds, and I'm all for seeing something done in those situations. But this, here, nope - if he acted this way to me I'd walk away, but then again it's not my job to deal with someone that might be breaking the law.
