An update on a story blogged earlier here on Boing Boing by Beschizza. BB reader Alex says,
A judge in Harford County, MD, threw out felony charges against motorcyclist Anthony Graber for taping a policeman who stopped him using a helmet-mounted camera. Graber admits he was speeding and may have been riding recklessly when an officer in plain clothes and an unmarked car pulled in front of him, drew a gun and ordered him off his bike before identifying himself as police. However, under Maryland's law which makes it illegal to videotape a police officer, he faced 16 years in prison.Baltimore Sun coverage here.
