A video (below) showing a Los Angeles, California, teenager arrested for an apparent bicycle helmet violation went viral and quickly sparked controversy. 

In the video, a group of police officers are seen standing outside a home attempting to get the teenager to come out and receive a ticket for allegedly not wearing a helmet.

The teen begins to question why he was getting a ticket, and an officer informs him that it was for a “vehicle code violation.”

The young man steps outside and is quickly searched by an officer, before being placed in handcuffs and escorted to a police car.
