Man who filmed Ahmaud Arbery shooting arrested and charged with murder – By Anthony Leonardi (Washington Examiner) / May 21 2020
The man who filmed a 25-year-old black man being shot in Georgia was charged with murder by the state.
William “Roddie” Bryan Jr., 50, was charged and arrested by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation on felony counts of murder and criminal attempt of false imprisonment for filming an incident that showed Ahmaud Arbery being shot in a street. Bryan Jr. will reportedly be booked into the Glynn County jail.
Should Bryan Jr. be convicted for the criminal charges against him, he would be eligible for the death penalty under Georgia law.
CNN prime-time host Chris Cuomo interviewed Bryan Jr. and his lawyer Kevin Gough following the incident, but Bryan Jr. could not answer many substantive questions related to the case.
