Anthony Graber was arrested for speeding on his motorcycle. He later posted the video of his arrest through his helmet mounted camera on the video sharing web site YouTube.
Graber is now facing a 16-year prison sentence for violating Maryland wiretapping laws. The statue in question does not mention video recording, and is supposed to apply only to private conversations.
With recording equipment becoming more widespread, it is likely we will see increased crack downs on independent journalists as governments and officials wish to hide their exercise of power.
