Video allegedly shows cyclist killed in Las Vegas

The death of a cyclist who was struck by a car is being investigated as a homicide after the release of a video that Las Vegas Metropolitan Police say indicated it was intentional.

Andreas Probst, 64, who had retired as Los Angeles area police chief, died after a car hit his bicycle on Aug. 14 and the driver fled the scene. But video shared online and obtained by local media shows the moments before Probst’s collision from the perspective of the two individuals inside the car. One of them can be heard saying: “Yeah, kick his ass.” The video then shows Probst lying on the side of the highway as the car continues.

The video went viral on Saturday as right-wing figures criticized local media coverage immediately after Probst’s death, before the footage was made public. In fact, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, its reporter received a tip about the video and encouraged the caller to contact authorities. Hours later, Las Vegas police said they were investigating the crash and treating it as a homicide.

Mourners signed a bicycle frame at a memorial for Andreas Probst near the site where he was struck in Las Vegas.

Clark County School District Police Department

A 17-year-old who police identified as the driver was arrested after the crash, and on Aug. 31, police said juvenile charges against him would be amended to include murder. In a statement obtained Monday by HuffPost, the Clark County district attorney said his office was seeking to charge the teen as an adult.

“I am confident that justice will be served in this case once the investigation is completed and the appropriate charges are filed,” Prosecutor Steve Wolfson said in the release.

The investigation into the passenger in the car, who appears to have recorded the video, continues, according to Las Vegas’ KLAS-TV.

When officers arrived on scene Aug. 14, they found Probst with life-threatening injuries and he was taken to hospital. He died shortly after arriving, according to police.

Taylor Probst, his daughter, told the Review-Journal that she received an alert from her father’s Apple Watch informing her that he had fallen. Since he retired as police chief of Bell, California, he went on daily bike rides.

According to the newspaper, his wife, Crystal Probst, drove to the scene, about three miles from their home. When she arrived, the police had already taken him to the hospital.

Crystal Probst, who also worked in law enforcement, told the Review-Journal that they would have celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary in September. In the days following his death, she described how lost she felt.

“Yesterday was the hardest, like oh my God, how the hell do we use the coffee maker? she said in an August 18 article.
