The shocking killing Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed black man, has gripped the globe.
Now, scrutiny of the case looks set to intensify after the man who filmed the 25-year-old’s demise has himself been arrested on a murder charge.
Full story below…
Today, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced that 50-year-old William “Roddie” Bryan is the third person to be detained in connection to the killing.
Initially presenting as a good Samaritan, Bryan’s video led to the arrest of father and son Gregory McMichael (64) and Travis McMichael (34). Both of whom chased Arbery (who was jogging in the Brunswick neighborhood) for four minutes before shooting him dead.
The incident took place on February, but the cellphone footage was only shared publicly this month, subsequently went viral, and led to the arrests of the McMichaels (the elder of who is a former police officer).
So how does Bryan factor in?
Well, an expanded version of the video (said to have been released by attorneys for Arbery’s family), showed that Bryan got into his car and also chased Arbery, filming while he was shot dead.
Bryan is currently incarcerated at the Glynn County Jail.
