Its not in that video, but the cops tased him after he was in handcuffs and away from the rest of the protesters (perhaps fittingly he was tased on K Street). That video can be found here at about 4:00.

Other than that, I know he goes by Lash (his last name). I meet the him when I went up to Occupy DC. The National Park Service is being pressured by Darrell Issa (Asshole-California) to close down the encampments. The metropolitan and local DC police are cool with ODC, but the NPS is run by the federal government (yay intrusion of federal government into local affairs when it benefits you!!). The deadline for evacuation was yesterday at noon, but the NPS has not done anything yet (probably to let the media disperse before they go in). But yesterday the occupiers set up a giant tent, literally, on McPherson's statue (called the tent of dreams) and tension is building between ODS and the NPS. I just checked their twitter and they're having an emergency general assembly now.

I wish I could be up there and I hope for the best  :-[
