TENNESSEE MAN ARRESTED FOR PHOTOGRAPHING A COP:
"Here's a guy who takes me out of the car and arrests me in front of my kids. For what? To take a picture of a police officer?" said Scott Conover.
A Johnson County sheriff's deputy arrested Scott Conover for unlawful photography.
"He says you took a picture of me. It's illegal to take a picture of a law enforcement officer," said Conover.
The News Sentinel's Michael Silence comments:
"Unlawful photography" in a public place? I don't think so. Memo to cop: Get a good civil attorney. Memo to the town of Mountain City: Are your liability premiums paid up?
This is disgraceful, but it seems to be increasingly common. Examples need to be made.
