Baltimore Police jailed Jason Fyk for recording a bar brawl in 2012, holding him for over 2 months on Attempted Murder charges, though Fyk recorded the incident lawfully.
Jason Fyk, owner of WTF Magazine, ended up incarcerated for 50 days over the charge because a judge denied him bail, even though his video clearly shows he never came close to the purported victim. Fyk tells the story in his book “Mags to Riches“.
In fact, the video shows the purported victim, Brandy Nicole Shipley, was actually the aggressor in the altercation, which took place in a parking garage on January 21, 2011.
Shipley also told police that Fyk never attacked her during the fight in which she exchanged punches with a couple of other men who were accompanying Fyk that night, including Steve Pullman of the motorcycle stunt team Adrenaline Crew, whom he was hoping to interview that night for his online magazine.
Little did he know, Shipley has an Uncle on Baltimore PD.
