The Georgia man who recorded the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery was arrested in part because he repeatedly tried to “confine and detain” the unarmed jogger with his vehicle in the minutes leading up to Arbery’s death, according to his arrest warrant.
The warrant for William “Roddie” Bryan Jr. alleges he “did attempt to confine and detain Ahmaud Arbery without legal authority … utilizing his vehicle on multiple occasions” in the 20 minutes before the fatal shotgun blasts, according to CNN.
Bryan, 50, acted “with the intention of confining and detaining Arbery,” the warrant states.
The Brunswick, Ga., man was arrested Thursday on charges of felony murder and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment.
Bryan’s video helped incriminate his neighbors Gregory McMichael, 64, and Travis McMichael, 34 — the white father and son charged with the Feb. 23 shooting death of Arbery, 25, who was black.
The pair reportedly chased the unarmed Arbery for more than four minutes before
