Don't know why the FBI would feel the need to tap his phone.

Investigating a hate crime.

^He is lucky he didn't get choked to death. Jaywalking is probably an offense as bad as selling a loosey.

Jaywalking video maker charged with contempt

The maker of a viral video depicting a controversial pedestrian arrest in Over-the-Rhine that prompted two Cincinnati Police Department investigations has been charged with contempt of court after a lawyer reported that he took photos with his cell phone inside the courthouse.

Charles Harrell, 29, was charged and a warrant was issued for his arrest Friday. In a sworn affidavit, Bernadette Longano, an attorney who has previously represented the City of Cincinnati in court, said she witnessed Harrell taking photos of two CPD officers in a hallway at the Hamilton County Courthouse on March 1.

She stated that on March 4 she saw a photo of the officers posted on Harrell's Facebook page.

On Saturday afternoon, Harrell had not yet been arrested on the contempt charge.

The Hamilton County Courthouse security policy bans cell phones and cameras from being used in "in any courtroom or hearing room, jury room, judge's chambers or ancillary area (to be determined in the sole discretion of the Court) without the express permission of the Court."

A photo of three people, who appear to be in police uniforms, was posted to Chris Harrell's Facebook page on March 1. The post states, "I'm in court."

Harrell was charged with obstruction of justice, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana and a pedestrian violation for jaywalking after being stopped by officer Baron Osterman. He posted a video of the Feb. 6 encounter on his Facebook page.

Harrell pleaded guilty to the drug charge, and not guilty to all of the other charges. The prosecution and defense are scheduled to meet again in court on Tuesday.

CPD announced Friday that internal and citizen complaint investigations have been launched after the video began getting attention on social media.

Fucking pigs is right.

Maybe he was thinking no one would run into it if they obeyed the law and got out of the lane adjacent to the stop.

Still, it was probably a violation of the courtesy policy.

What violation? They were resisting. They should be happy they weren't tazed.

At least here, that's not the law.  It is move over OR slow down:

  • When traveling on a road with two or more lanes, drivers must keep over one full lane away from stopped emergency vehicles with flashing lights activated — ambulance, fire, law enforcement, maintenance, construction vehicles and tow trucks.

  • Reduce speed if unable to safely move over a lane.

I dunno, that sure reads to me like you have to move over a lane unless you can't.

Anyone who thinks pepper spraying someone on a moving motorcycle is justified has real problems with judgement

I'm no lawyer but it looks like reckless endangerment at the very least

I don't know what that emoticon means, but my point was "I don't know the law where it happened, but the law here is x."

FWIW, I believe the texas law is similar. Move over or slow down 20mph

The bikes don't appear to be going particularly fast, and the lanes to the left of them have traffic in them...

I don't know why we are arguing about this though...that's a ticketable offense. So basically anyone who thinks that it is justified would also say that you could pepper spray a motorcycle for speeding or failure to use a turn signal...

If a citizen did that, they'd probably have an attempted murder charge on them if the DA was feeling feisty...or maybe at least an assault with a deadly weapon (since the spray could cause a deadly crash).
