Breaking: 3rd Arbery Murderer Arrested, William “Roddie” Bryan


Man who recorded Arbery’s shooting death on video arrested

The Georgia man who recorded the fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery was arrested Thursday for murder and attempted false imprisonment, authorities said.

William “Roddie” Bryan, 50, is the third person to be arrested in the Feb. 23 death of Ahmaud Arbery, 25.

Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son, Travis McMichael, 34, were arrested earlier this month after the video of Arbery’s fatal shooting was released. The McMichaels have said they believed Arbery was a burglary suspect.

Arbery’s family has said he was going for a run when he was shot to death in the coastal city of Brunswick.

A lawyer for Bryan, Kevin Gough, told “TODAY” earlier this month that Bryan had fully cooperated with investigators and was only a witness to the shooting.

Bryan was in his yard when he saw Arbery running, followed by a white pickup truck with the McMichaels in it, Gough said. Bryan followed them because he wanted a photo of Arbery, he said.

“There had been a number of crimes in the neighborhood, and he didn’t recognize him and a vehicle that he did recognize was following him,” Gough said.

Gough added that Bryan voluntarily went to the local police department and answered questions during a “lengthy” interview without a lawyer.

  1. I’ve heard this story dozens of times, but I still can’t really understand it. Who was to blame. Is there a special Georgia state there? Or do the bloodthirsty Ku Klux Klansmen live there? Or are there some desperate black people there? Would there have been the same noise if a white man had been shot?
    P.S. Chester Hames. “Run, nigger, run!” I read this book in 1988.(USSR).

  2. Since when do we arrest witnesses? Did he have an opportunity to stop it and didn’t try? We seem to only have 1/3 the story.

  3. So it was just as it appeared. They “kettled” a jogger because he was black with the intention of false imprisonment at best, and murder most likely.
    The result of the crime is the basis of charges. This was hunting.
