Andrew Henderson and a local police department are at it again.
Henderson, who was acquitted by a Ramsey County jury last year for refusing to stop taping police and an ambulance crew in Little Canada, was detained by St. Paul police this month for taping cops to see if they wore seat belts at the same time they were enforcing seat belt use.
A police spokesman tells the Pioneer Press that officers wear their seat belts “99.9 percent of the time.”
The St. Paul city attorney tells the newspaper that his office will work with the police department “to clarify the rights of way applicable to the sidewalks around the public-safety buildings in the area.”
