Charges dropped against speeding biker who filmed gun-toting cop during arrest

Authorities in US drop case over Youtube video poster

A MOTORCYCLIST in America has escaped a potential prison sentence for filming himself being arrested by a gun-wielding plain clothes cop in an unmarked police car.

In March this year, Visordown reported the story of motorcyclist Anthony Graber, who was apprehended at gunpoint by a plain clothes police officer after he was spotted speeding on his motorcycle.

Graber, 24, faced prison because he posted video of the entire incident on‘YouTube’.

Earlier this week a judge in Harford County dropped felony charges against Graber.

‘The judge held that state police, or any police officer, have no reasonable expectation of privacy in their public or on the job communications,’ said David Rocah, an attorney for the ACLU of Maryland.

A spokesman for the state police said the trooper followed the law.

'The trooper, if he or she feels an illegal audio-taping has occurred, would pursue that with the local state's attorney's office,’ said the spokesman.
