Topeka teen has incident with police over videotape

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -

A Topeka teenager has had another confrontation with law enforcement over his attempt to use a video camera to record interactions between police and the public.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Addison Mikkelson was at the Statehouse on Wednesday to participate in the Kansas Day activities planned in the building.

The 17-year-old says while at the site he noticed people jaywalking in the presence of Capitol Police.

Mikkelson says he then started videotaping the activity and asking the officer why he didn't intercede. The teen returned to the Statehouse on Thursday with his camera running and had a discussion with an officer before being escorted from the building.

The teen has made other attempts to videotape law enforcement in Topeka doing their job.
