Brandon Vreeland, 40, and James Baker, 24, were charged with carrying a concealed weapon, resisting arrest and disturbing the peace. Baker was also charged with brandishing a weapon.
The two men are currently out on bond. After today's probable cause hearing, the men will have a preliminary exam on March 17.
According to Nicholas Somberg, the attorney representing Vreeland, the surveillance video doesn’t show any illegal activity by either man.
“It doesn’t show my client breaking any law, certainly not felony firearm laws -- certainly not felony resisting arrest,” said Somberg.
|What does state law say?
If, as their attorney stated, they violated no laws, it is incumbent upon the legislature to write law civilly and criminally penalizing the department and everybody in the chain of command from the arresting officer upward for unlawful arrest, detention and kidnapping.
They won't stop until there are legal teeth to bite them, DEEP, when they cross this line.
