red1100cc arrested in Memphis

  1. here's the short story
    i was filming officers on Beale St. make an arrest when an officer approached a group of us and pushed us, quite violently i might add, about 10' down the sidewalk, screaming in our faces "clear the street!". i thought that was ****ed up! so i turned to him, and with my camera still on him, i asked for his name and badge number (thinking i would file a complaint later). when i did this, i was arrested for disorderly conduct and public intox. all my video and pic were erased off my phone by the arresting officer, and i went to jail.
    i got a lawyer went to court this morning and all charges were dropped.
    it was bull**** anyway. i wasn't drunk and i was being as polite as i can. i never raised my voice.

    i work with the police on a regular basis ans have never been treated this way by an officer.

    it cost me my flight out of here, extra motel and food costs, had to pay the bondsmen, Lawyer fees, exct..

    Memphis Can Kiss My Butt,

    im happy to be free!

    Im going home, never to return, ever ever ever again!

    That's exactly how that situation would end up for me 99.8% of the time, which is why I mind my business and keep on rollin. I try to pick and choose my battles wisely and trying to exercise my rights against a hot-headed cop (regardless of being right or wrong) just because vs. all the costs you described above usually makes for a simple decision.

    Sorry your trip was ruined. That sux.

    Sorry you were treated that way Red!:down:

    I watched a guy get arrested for offering a uc a nickel when asked if he was looking for a party. That was on Beale as well. I was on the next stool at the bat and heard the entire exchange personally.

    Similar thing happened to me in Myrtle Beach many moons ago. Go to this bar sober. Pay my ten dollar cover to include band and free beer until 7:00pm. Go to bar to get free beer - bartender says go see the guy/bouncer at front door to get cup where you came in - Okey dokey - walk four steps out the door to get my cup and the guy says you need to pay ten bucks - what! just paid ten bucks even have a stamp... Literally we have a 30 second conversation and the bouncer gives the nod to a uniformed cop. I was immediately arrested, spent the night in jail and released no charges the next day. Now you may think I was mad at the bouncer - not really - since when do cops arrest someone based solely on the bouncers word. Total BS and I wasn't even read my rights - just plucked off the street and jailed. I was young and without resources then but if something like that happened to me today watch out.

    Maybe your tech guy can recover what was deleted and you can go back a press charges and get some of the moneys refunded. PLUSS get the AH that treated you so bad. Its just sad that our justice system works the way it does and some people get away with the things they do.
     
  18. :laugh: nope, not stoned, just needin to go cry in the bathtub. by that time i had been up over 32hrs.


    my wife wants to use that pic for our Christmas cards to close friends..lmao:rofl:

    you should be able to find an app that syncs your videos to youtube, as well as password protect your phone so they can't just access the contents.
