Submitted by tombeard
tombeard (126886) writes "Making a recording of a police traffic stop is not a crime in the opinion of Maryland's attorney general.

McDonald found the legal grounds weak for felony wiretapping charges of the type brought against a motorcyclist who posted a video of himself being arrested on YouTube.
