Video: Activist Sues City After Cops Arrest Him For Filming Them

An activist is suing the city in federal court after police arrested him for stopping to film their interaction with another man near Astor Place in 2014. Another five minutes pass, and the man is standing and talking to the officers when An walks up. Unless officers have probable cause to believe someone has committed a crime, people have the right to refuse to produce identification, and refusing to produce ID alone can’t be the basis for an obstructing police work charge.
