Topeka Cop Tickets Teen For Recording Him Speeding (PINAC)
Tuesday March 4th, 2014
At 17 years of age, Addison Mikkelson is on a mission to keep police in Topeka, Kansas honest.
But the more he tries, the more he realizes he has his work cut out for him.
As you may remember, Mikkelson was arrested for jaywalking in December when he crossed the street to try and video record cops at a convenience station.
Then in January, he was confronted by police officer who used every line in the book to try to keep him from video recording a security checkpoint in the state’s capitol building.
His latest run-in involves him video recording a Topeka police officer who had been speeding ten miles over the speed limit, then didn’t use his turn signal and didn’t come to a complete stop at a stop sign.
When the cop, whose last name is Cartmill, noticed Mikkelson video recording from his car, he gave him two citations; one for “inattentive driving,” another for having a “TV screen in view of the driver.”
In this case, the television screen was his camera screen.
