In a short video posted to instagram, a Seattle PD cruiser can be seen trying to get over a mound of snow that protesters used to block in patrol vehicles. The Officer attempts to exit the garage where the cars are stored but ultimately none of their patrol vehicles were capable of making it up.
A video surfaced of the incident and was posted by journalist Andy Ngo. The video shows the protesters cheering as the vehicle fails to make it over the snow barrier. A short time later the crowd was informed that they cannot block in a police vehicle. The crowd of protestors began shouting.
At one point, another individual on crutches crumbles up a small piece of snow up close to an officer's bodycam. The officer does not react.
After a few minutes of shouting back and forth between police and protesters, chants of "peaceful protest" breakout. Officers then proceed to push the individual on crutches back before a small scuffle momentarily breaks out.
In another exchange a few minutes later, one officer asks a protester if they would like a sticker: "You seem a little angry and sad, usually stickers make people feel better," the officer says. The individual replies: "I'm not sad; am I angry? Yes."
Seattle PD eventually clears the snow and heads back into the precinct to avoid any further contact with the individuals.
