A Florida man who regularly video records DUI checkpoints to ensure police are operating in compliance of the law was arrested Friday night, moments after he had recorded Hillsborough County deputies falling out of compliance, which he believes may have been to wave a fellow cop through the checkpoint without having to be checked for sobriety.

Even if there was no cop in the car that was allowed to pass through, it created enough of an inconsistency from the predetermined protocol to make all the other stops from that night unconstitutional.

And that is probably why they wanted him removed.

Wally Sullivan, 59,  was stripped of his camera and handcuffed , then transported to the sheriff’s office where he was fingerprinted and released within an hour.

They kept his camera as “evidence,” even though they had no legal right to do so considering he is not being accused of using his camera in the commission of a crime.

They didn’t realize he had another camera in a pouch around his neck, which is from where the posted videos come from; the top video being the shortened version, the bottom video the extended version, well worth the 30 minutes.
