You would have to be some sort lowlife to film a crash like this and not help out,the guy is an oxygen thief....

I have to say though it seems a little like life imitating art :

What this man did was totally immoral, and even though I find it disgusting and can't imagine doing anything like this, it's not illegal. There are no laws (that I know of), that say you must help. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Immoral is not illegal.

Please don't get it twisted-I think it's disturbing behavior.

He can always move to London and be a paparazzi.

I heard that Kate Middleton might be expecting again.

While I don't agree with arrests for filming authorities who may be up to no good, he was not even doing that, he was obstructing the accident scene that could have lead to death/s. The way aggressive handling of situations by authorities is these days he's lucky he was just arrested.

Are there laws requiring bystanders to provide assistance?


Pretty sad when apathy reaches the point where it's necessary to enact laws requiring bystanders to help people in need of assistance.



You sort of need an applicable law to arrest someone for doing something you don't like. At least that's the way it's supposed to work.

2305.41 Duties to disabled persons definitions.


Back to the same thing. This code's not applicable either. It does not require a bystander to assist. Just gives them an out if they search a disabled person for an ID.

I remember in driver's ed, we were taught that if you saw an accident, you had a duty to stop and render what aid you could while you waited for help to arrive. It was taught like it was the law.

This guy deserves something. How you could see two people in need just watch them die is beyond me.


There are only four states that do so, and Ohio doesn't seem to be one of them.

It wouldn't have dawned on me to take photos, much less leave them there without any assistance. But you can't have cops making up crap to dish out justice either, no matter how attractive that justice might seem.

Under what charges? Must a person help in this situation and if so what law compels that person to do so?


Doesn't seem to be one in Ohio. Further, if a cop in Ohio can randomly charge me with trespassing for entering someone's vehicle when there's a crash and I'm being a total jerk like this guy, then that cop can charge me with it if I'm assdeep in the car applying tourniquets and he decides to take out his frustrations.

And don't say he wouldn't do it, if he can, it'll happen.

So instead of being a victory over assholism, it's really an indication that you're at their whim if you help.

It goes along with why I'd be hesitant to provide medical assistance to a cop.

I just hope there is a charge that they can make stick.

So there were already people there assisting? And he is lawfully required to join in? Ever here the saying that "too many cooks spoil the pot"?

I'm amazed that so many people are so confused over such a simple concept.

He wasn't arrested for not helping. He was arrested for vehicle trespass. How you can even pretend my comment can be taken as "he was arrested for not helping" is mind boggling.

More reason for me to have lost faith in humanity


I completely agree. I've stopped once to help what looked like a car crash but turned out to be someone who hit a tree fast but not fast enough to cause any injuries. I saw others standing and watching but not helping.

The world can be a horrible place.

Ok. My mistake then. I thought that was the case. And I agree with you. He definitely trespassed and deserves that .......fine? or arrest? What is SOP for trespass?

All the police will do is to take the photos, movie or whatever from him, he will not be sue or any sue will stick, only personnel that are identified as care workers like doctors and nurses can take the risk of helping an injured person as first aid assistance.

If you approach a person and help them in an accident and that person dies, you can be liable for the wrongful death law sue.

Exactly.

That's why I was a little confused about people saying he had a requirement to provide aid.

Hell....cops don't even have to per the SCOTUS. Or the cops that stood around and watched Eric Gardner suffocate right in front of them would be in jail.......

My daughter is a nurse and an ER trauma nurse at that, so in her case if she is driving with her tag on, that identified her as a nurse and she passes an area where is injured people and do not help, if somebody identified her she can lose her license, as a care worker she have to assist on first aid assistance that's is required in some states, if the person dies in her care after trying to assist she can not be sue.
