Man Who Filmed Ahmaud Arbery Shooting Charged With Murder William Bryan Jr.ís lawyer says he was just a witness
WSJ ^ | May 21, 2020 7:53 pm ET | Arian Campo-Flores

Kevin Gough, a lawyer for Mr. Bryan, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. In an interview last week, he said Mr. Bryan “had no role or involvement in that shooting. He has committed no crime. He is a witness.”

Mr. Arbery’s family and civil-rights activists have pressed for weeks for authorities to charge Mr. Bryan, arguing he wasn’t simply a witness but was involved in the young man’s killing.

In an April letter to the Glynn County Police Department, George Barnhill, the district attorney in Waycross who oversaw the case for a period before recusing himself, wrote that Mr. Bryan was in “hot pursuit” of Mr. Arbery along with the McMichaels in the moments leading up to the shooting. Mr. Bryan is also named as a witness in a police report.

On May 7, the GBI arrested the McMichaels and charged them with murder and aggravated assault. The agency said it executed a search warrant at the McMichaels’ home on Tuesday. Lawyers for both men have said they aren’t guilty and have been subject to a rush to judgment.

The problem is they came across some stupider than they were.

Life is hard enough minding your own business and the affairs of your family. If you want to get involved in this kind of way there are prices to pay.

I like the squealers on social distancing whose names were printed on social media. Good.

This case is going to make people hide and cower when something is happening in their neighborhoods.

Just call the cops. When seconds count, they’re only minutes away.

I’m sorry but the appearance it was staged is hard to miss. Arbery may be guilty as sin. The fact, that it went to hell is for a jury to hear. This was not the way to handle any of this. IMHO

Arbery may be guilty as sin.

The way he behaved around police, then reportedly charged a man bearing a loaded firearm, I'm afraid he was probably just too stupid to live.

Staged would mean it was planned in advance. A conspiracy.

How was this a staged conspiracy?

You got a point there. Hard to believe anyone could be more stupid that the father son dynamic duo along with the photographer whose name keeps being mentioned in official reports being in”hot pursuit” of the victim or “attempting to corner” the victim. That sounds like a case for Matlock. But truth is stranger than fiction.

I didn’t say it was a conspiracy Ace you better get a grip. You’re either stupid or pushing and agenda. I said “gives the appearance”. Wake up.

How did he behave around police? These were not Officers of the law he encountered. By the time the Officer[s] arrived, he was deceased.When this is all plated out, all three will wish they had stayed home that day. According to the records no one with any standing in the case requested their assistance. Certainly not the home owner.

I didn't go past the WSJ paywall, is that an actual quote?

He was aggressive around uniformed police. Hard to imagine he was more cooperative around others.
