This is the jarring moment a police sergeant was filmed making up a law to prevent an Uber driver from filming him.
When officer Kenneth Becker pulled over Jesse Bright, he had no idea what or who he was dealing with: a criminal defense attorney no less. Bright had been pulled over and asked to get out of his vehicle so the officers could search it for drugs.
Shocked, Bright got his dashcam and began filming the incident. When Becker told him to stop, Bright asked under what law. It’s real showstopping stuff.
Becker said: “Be careful because there is a new law. Turn off or I’ll take you to jail.”
Bright hit back, saying: ‘For recording you? What is the law?”
An accompanying deputy then agreed with Becker, saying there was a new state law forbidding the filming of police officers. Impatient, they then called Bright a ‘jerk’ before once again demanding he get out of the car, even bringing along some good ol’ sniffer dogs to emphasize the point.
Becker has since been demoted to corporal, which is said to have cost him a slight $1.38 an hour.
