What MPD has to say about a viral video appearing to show a man getting arrested for recording police

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WREG) — Memphis Police are now commenting on a viral video making the rounds on social media appearing to show a bystander getting in trouble for recording a crime scene.

The video was posted on Monday by someone with the Facebook screen name of Francesco DaDon Guglielmette.

As the camera begins rolling near a squad car, an officer asks the person recording to get on the sidewalk as he’s standing in the middle of the street.

The officer then says sidewalks are made for walking, and the man should keep moving.

Several seconds later it appears the man recording is involved in some sort of tussle during which he drops the camera.
