Sounds like a justified seizure to me. Take the phone and get a warrant for the contents. There was no reason at all that the female should not have cooperated and just played the video for the officer that asked for it. If anything she should be charged with obstruction. The officer wasn't taking it just because she video taped it. He just wanted to see if she captured the crime and she felt like being uncooperative because of her hatred for the police. She was and is wrong.

No such thing as justified seizure without probably cause. The 4th amendment makes it illegal to improperly seize property. If the officer made the arrest then he must've felt he had probable cause to do so.
