One surveillance video showed former California Highway Patrol officer Tony Yao driving a stake into the ground to hold up a banner for a San Francisco 49ers playoff game in January 2012. Others played in Sacramento Superior Court in Yao’s workers’ compensation fraud trial last month showed him carrying shopping bags, helping walk a bike and apparently disassembling a baby carriage. These images contrasted with others in the same time frame of Yao the days he showed up at the doctor’s office to get treatment for the back he said he injured in May 2011 while on the job for the CHP, pulling a chain to move a target.
