UPDATE: A deaf man beaten by Oklahoma Highway Patrolmen during an arrest is to be arraigned Friday on charges for resisting arrest.
For nearly two months, the OHP refused to release the video of that arrest.
Then the arrest became part of a criminal case and NewsChannel 4 was the only station to get that dash cam video.
Now there is a new bill that would make all OHP dash cam videos available to the public upon request.
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is one step closer to following the state’s Open Records Act.
House Bill 2676 would require the OHP to follow the Oklahoma Open Records Act, which would make dash cam footage open to the public.
All police agencies in the state are required to adhere to the rules except the OHP.
The bill’s author, Rep. Ken Walker, says the OHP supports the measure.
