The man who recorded Ahmaud Arbery's fatal shooting in Brunswick, Georgia has been arrested and charged with murder.
William "Roddie" Bryan, 50, was arrested Thursday, May 21, on felony murder charges and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment, the Associated Press reports.
Arbery, 25, was killed as he ran down a street in the Satilla Shores neighborhood on Feb. 23. He was pursued by Travis McMichael, 34, and his father, retired cop Gregory McMichael, 64, who rode in the bed of a pickup truck armed with a .357 magnum.
Arbery was shot three times during a struggle over Travis's shotgun. Bryan was in a second vehicle and recorded the life and death struggle on his cell phone.
Gregory McMichael leaked the video to a radio station because he thought the footage would vindicate him and his son. But the video footage caused outrage on social media and sparked reactions from President Trump and former vice president Joe Biden.
The McMichaels were finally arrested two months after the shooting. Both were charged with felony murder and aggravated assault. They are in the Glynn County jail awaiting trial.
Bryan, through his attorney, claimed he received death threats and was in hiding because he feared for his life.
His arrest comes two days after Arbery's family attorney, S. Lee Merritt, called for him to be charged.
