The video begins by showing a Pampa police officer approaching a photographer as he attempts to test out a new camera.
As the officer begins asking personal questions, the photographer remains relatively tight lipped, opting to continue his legal activity.
Shortly after, as the traffic stop come to an end, the photographer is approached by a Deputy Stokes, who immediately attempts to confiscate all photography equipment for “evidence.”
Unable to provide which law allows for confiscation, Stokes, now clearly upset, resorts to assaulting the photographer.
Stokes continues by telling the photographer that his filming is a “violation” despite no law supporting his claim.
Attempting to get ID, Stokes continues to claim the legal authority to detain the photographer for filming despite the action being repeatedly upheld by the Supreme Court.
“You can’t go around recording us!” Stokes incorrectly claims.
