This video and write up are from a member of Rockville Copwatch who was recently arrested for videotaping police stops.
I was on my way home from work when I noticed a cop pulling people over for making a right turn when it’s not allowed (4-6pm M-F). I’ve uploaded a previous video where I had a conversation with one officer that was stationed to do the same thing. I go around the block and park about 100 feet ahead of where the cop had someone pulled over. I turned off the car and observed, without recording. After the cop finished with the original stop, they turned and saw another car violating the sign. They turn again, pulling the second car over. This time, however, it’s right in front/diagonal of my car, blocking me in. I start the recording after a second officer pulls up (directly on the side of my car) and suspect that he’ll make contact with me. After being pulled from the car and sitting for almost an hour, they finally decide to charge me with “Obstructing”.
If you want to call and ask why their officers are so uninformed about simple law and procedure, the info is: Woman cop is J. Dyer, male cop is Johnson; I don’t know the first initial. I’ve been told they don’t use badge numbers but I’ve never actually noticed whether that’s true. They work out of the 4th District for the Montgomery County PD in MD.
