Charges Dropped for Maryland Man Who Posted Traffic Stop Video on YouTube


Harford County Circuit Judge Emory Plitt Jr. dropped wiretapping charges against a Maryland motorcyclist who filmed a traffic stop using a helmet mounted camera and posted the footage to video streaming site YouTube. 25-year-old Anthony Graber III still faces charges of reckless driving and negligent driving following his arrest in March.

Graber had been filming a motorcycle ride down I-95 when he was pulled over by a plainclothes police officer. In the clip, the officer approaches the young man aggressively and draws a gun prior to identifying himself as a policeman. After state police were made aware of the clip’s dissemination, a search warrant was obtained for Graber’s home and personal items of his including his computer were seized. He was indicted in April.
