Every peace officer who files any report with the agency which employs him or her regarding the commission of any crime or any investigation of any crime, if he or she knowingly and intentionally makes any statement regarding any material matter in the report which the officer knows to be false, whether or not the statement is certified or otherwise expressly reported as true, is guilty of filing a false report punishable by imprisonment in the county jail for up to one year, or in the state prison for one, two, or three years.

The officers in this video wrote a false police report. They stated that they were attacked during this traffic stop. They said that the man thrown into the window pushed himself into the glass after attacking the officers. They wrote a false report to justify the unwarranted use of force. Both officers were forced to retire. The video and subsequent media attention resulted in a new law in California punishing police officers for writing false reports.
