VIDEO: Ore. Cop Seizes Citizen's Video

A woman who considers herself a "citizen journalist" told KATU she plans to sue, after a Gresham (Ore.) Police officer seized video she captured during an arrest.

Carrie Medina initialy refused to show the officer the video she recorded of an arrest, when the officer asked for it. On the video, the officer can be heard explaining to Medina that he needs to see the video to see if she captured evidence of a crime. Eventually, the officer grabs the video recorder from Medina.

A Gresham PD spokesman told KATU the officer was within his legal rights to secure "perishable evidence." Several legal expets said the issue isn't clear cut.
