MTA Officers Detain Man For Taking Pictures

The Maryland Transit Administration says more training may be called for after three MTA officers detained a man for taking pictures at a light rail station. Pat Warren has more on the incident.

According to the ACLU, this isn’t the first time MTA police have overstepped their bounds.

In a Youtube posting, Christopher Fussell left the camera rolling when he was confronted by three MTA officers for taking pictures at the Baltimore Cultural Light Rail Station.

“Not on state property, not without proper authorization,” an officer said.
