    A video that purports to show the altercation between 35-year-old Taylor and the Los Angeles officer was posted online by TMZ.com. 

    Taylor was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats and posted $50,000 bail.

    A photo posted to his Instagram account on Monday shows the 35-year-old crouching under the LAPD station sign with the caption "waiting for my Uber" and "lol #WinnersCircle." Days before, he posted a photo of himself in a hot tub with the message "relaxing in the sauna before I turn myself in..... But what you gone do when you get outta jail... I'm gonna have some fun."
