In The US, Police Arrested Arkansas State Rep. who pushed for law to film police, For filming Police

An Arkansas politician who helped pass state legislation protecting people who film the police, has been arrested for... filming the police.

Representative John Walker was arrested by Little Rock police on Monday for filming the arrest of a driver and his passenger following a traffic stop and charged with “obstruction of government relations”.

“I’m just making sure they don’t kill you,” said Walker to the driver being pulled over and subsequently arrested for an outstanding warrant, according to the police report.

“I ordered Walker several times to leave or be arrested. Walker replied ‘arrest me’ at which point I did,” wrote the arresting officer. 



Walker’s associate, lawyer Omavi Shuker, 29, was also arrested at the scene for walking between the police vehicle and pulled over car.

LRPD released dashcam footage of the incident so members of the public could see how the situation unfolded.
