Police Officer Tells Attorney To stop Filming Because Of ‘New Law’

Jesse Bright, an attorney in Wilmington, NC, filmed this incident, in which he was stopped by Wilmington PD and New Hanover County Sheriff’s Department officers. A WPD officer tells him “turn it off or I’m going to take you to jail” at the :30 second mark. A minute later, an unidentified NHC Sheriff’s officer claims “they just recently passed it,” referring to a law banning the filming of police officers.
