"Disorderly behaviour" is whatever the police say it is. Lol.

I guess it could be that he resisted when they tried to stop him and the police used that as a pretext. Going by his interview, he might have been a bit rude with them too.

Still, they say police can stop you (and presumably take a picture of you as they do in the video) if you try to hide your face from these face recognition cameras which are supposed to be just a trial run for the police to learn how to best use them. I can remember when people got worked up about ID cards which seems rather innocent at this point.
