Okay, so he was charged with failure to follow a lawful order for not placing his hands behind his back while in the process of being arrested. Why was he being arrested and thus how was the order lawful in the first place? I know folks here are claiming he was obstructing but then where is the obstruction charge? Seems this does have something to do with him filming and they know they cannot charge him for that.
I see they claim he spit on the officer and tried charging him with felony assault of a public servant but that charge was tossed. No sure how spitting on an officer could be felony assault but perhaps that exposes the mentality of these particular officers.
You are a mind trickster and propagandist for the system. You do no greater disservice than spreading your discordance to the people.

Filming a police officer is fine.
Obstructing that police officer from performing his/her duty is not.
This is an old story, anyway. Guy was arrested in 2012.
A jury has found Antonio Buehler not guilty of failing to comply with the order of an officer on New Year’s Day 2012.
