William Roddy Bryan, the 50-year-old man who filmed the viral video of 25-year-old jogger Ahmaud Arbery being shot to death, has been arrested on charges of felony murder and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment in connection with Arbery's slaying.
Bryan has been booked into the Glynn County Jail and his case is being investigated in partnership with District Attorney Joyette Holmes of the Cobb County District Attorney's Office, according to a press release from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
Bryan's arrest follows a recent public plea by the slain man's mother, Wanda Cooper-Jones, asking why Bryan didn't try to help stop her son's murder.
"Why would you videotape it? Why didn't he do anything to help? Why didn't he reach out right after the shooting? Why did he only come forward after the video was leaked?" Cooper-Jones asked in a May 11 interview.
Bryan has previously told CBS News he was trying to be a "good Samaritan" by recording the incident and says he has been "complete shock" since witnessing Arbery's alleged murder.
