Daniel J. Saulmon was jailed for four days for attempting to record police officers on a public street in Hawthorne, California.
Saulmon was charged with resisting, delaying and obstructing a police officer, but the video (below) shows he was standing several feet away from a traffic stop that he was recording, reports PhotographyisNotaCrimeSaturday.com.
Prosecutors have dropped the charge against Saulmon as well as a few other minor citations relating to his bicycle.
Ironically, Saulmon won a $25,000 settlement from the same police department after they arrested him on eavesdropping/wiretapping charges in 2005.
Saulmon told PhotographyisNotaCrimeSaturday.com: “They knew exactly who I was. They always address me as ‘Mr. Saulmon.'"
Saulmon added that he has recorded them on a regular basis since the 2005 arrest, when he was jailed after attempting to file a complaint inside the police station.
