VIDEO: Sovereign Citizen TASERed In Courthouse

Robert Peterson entered the courthouse for a hearing on a citation he received for riding his bicycle at night without a light.

Peterson refused repeated requests from court officers to stop filming, ranting that he is a man rather than a "person" and is exempt from statues and regulations. Idaho law requires media professionals to get permission before filming in court.

Peterson told KXLY he thinks the case will be dismissed once video of the incident is made public.
