Classic highside. He opened the throttle a little too much while leaned way over, causing the rear tire to spin up (causing the first tire marks). When that happened, he chopped the throttle (marks stopped briefly) and the rear tire regained traction. Since the tires were out of line with each other when the rear regained traction, the bike tried to correct itself (intermittent marks) by standing itself up very quickly, which launched the rider over the high side of the bike. No brakes were involved in that accident.
