The incident that occurred last Monday, but was posted online Friday, shows officers detaining a man named Bill Gluckman at the Pleasant Hill Station in Walnut Creek, according to The San Francisco Examiner. In the clip, you can see Gluckman, who’s eating his sandwich questioning why he’s been stopped. “You came up here and f—-ed” with me,” Gluckman tells the cop. “You single me out, out of all these people.” The Officer then responds, “You’re eating,” while pointing to Gluckman’s food. “It’s against the law. It’s a violation of California law. I have the right to detain you.” BART took to Twitter on Friday to clarify the incident in a tweet, saying that despite being cuffed, Gluckman was only issued a citation. “No matter how you feel about eating on BART, the officer saw someone eating and asked him to stop, when he didn’t he was given a citation,” the tweet said.

Social media users immediately shared their disappointment with the officers for their poor move. Janice Li, a member of BART’s Board of Directors, even condemned the officers.

“To see yet another young black man impacted by law enforcement like this is extremely troubling to me,” Li told the paper. “This is a question of what we are putting our BART police towards. We know how to make the system better and safer, and this ain’t it.”
