Questionable timing, politics surround case against citizen journalist

A citizen journalist honored by several Georgia groups for increasing access to open government is now facing serious criminal charges after simply recording an event billed as a public political rally.

Nydia Tisdale entered a plea of not guilty last week to felony obstruction of an officer and misdemeanor counts of obstruction and criminal trespass.

Tisdale talks to Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Jodie Fleischer about what led to the moment she says a deputy roughed her up, and the high-ranking position the accused officer wants, Monday at 5 on Channel 2 Action News.
