Man Sues After Arrest For Recording Police

September 29, 2011, Huntington Police pulled a vehicle over and started searching it.  Joseph Pniewski of Huntington captures it all on tape.

"Sir, could I ask what you are doing?" asks on of the officers.  "I'm recording what's going on for the purpose of community response," said Pniewski.

He said he's a freelance investigative journalist.  He adds the purpose of the video he shot last September is to further document what he says are questionable practices by Huntington Police.
