Florida Woman: Cop Attacked Me For Recording Traffic Stop
Woman files lawsuit after going to jail for recording her own traffic stop.
S. Florida Brandy Berning is suing her local PD after Broward County sheriff's deputy used excessive force once the woman informed him that she was recording their conversation.
Florida law prohibits private recording without both parties' consent, but a routine traffic stop is considered a public matter. The police officer could not have his private rights violated in a public situation.
What do you think? Was the woman or officer over-dramatic about the situation?
