Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
ROCHESTER, N.Y. - The Rochester Police Department is investigating the arrest of a woman who was videotaping police during a traffic stop in front of a home on Aldine Street.
Emily Good, 28, was arrested at about 10 p.m. May 12 and charged with second-degree obstructing governmental administration. She is scheduled to appear in Rochester City Court for a proceeding on June 27, police said.
Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard issued a statement Tuesday, saying he has received a video of a woman’s arrest by city officers. “I have researched the incident and determined that the case is currently proceeding through the adjudication process,” Sheppard said in the statement. “… With the case still pending and my unfamiliarity with the specific details, any assumptions at this time would be premature.”
