A detective in Washington state was placed on administrative leave Tuesday after video of a controversial traffic stop surfaced in which he’s seen pointing his gun at a motorcyclist without identifying himself.

The man on the bike, Alex Randall, was wearing a helmet camera when he was pulled over on Aug. 16 by the King County Sheriff’s detective.
