BREAKING: Man who filmed Ahmaud Arbery shooting is arrested
- William ‘Roddie’ Bryan Jr., 50, was arrested on charges of Felony Murder & Criminal Attempt to Commit False Imprisonment, officials said
The man who filmed Ahmaud Arbery shooting was arrested Thursday, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.
William ‘Roddie’ Bryan Jr., 50, was arrested on charges of Felony Murder & Criminal Attempt to Commit False Imprisonment, officials said.
Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son Travis McMichael, 34, have been charged with murder and aggravated assault for the shooting death of unarmed jogger Arbery, 25, in Brunswick, Georgia, back in February.
Bryan, a neighbor of the McMichaels, watched and shot the footage of the attack.
Ben Crump, an attorney for the victim’s family, had already called for Bryan’s arrest for aiding and abetting the McMichaels in Arbery’s murder.
‘This is William “Roddie” Bryan – who we believe may have been the third person in pursuit of #AhmaudArbery. If he chased down Ahmaud and filmed his execution, he should be arrested and charged with aiding and abetting them in committing this crime of murder. #RunWithMaud,’ Crump wrote in a Twitter.
