An Oregon deputy claimed it was illegal to record him before arresting a man who had been recording a traffic stop from a considerable distance.

The Klamath County sheriffís deputy had walked up to the man after having pulled over the manís girlfriend.

Here is the exchange that took place:
Deputy: †Whatís your name?

Citizen: Thatís not relevant at all.

Deputy: Is that recording me right now?

Citizen: Yeah.

Deputy: Put your hands behind your back.

Citizen: Um, for what

Deputy: Itís a crime to record me

Citizen: No, itís not, in Oregon Ö

Deputy: Turn around now

Citizen: If only one party knows that it is being recorded, then that is all that matters.
It is not clear from the Youtube description what the man was charged with, but I sent him a message and commented on the video in the hopes he will respond.

But it has already been established that citizens have the right to record cops in Oregon because they do not have an expectation of privacy in public, even though they tried to pretend otherwise a few years ago.
