William “Roddie” Bryan, the man who recorded the video of Ahmaud Arbery‘s killing, is now the third suspect to be arrested for the young man’s murder.

William ‘Roddie’ Bryan Jr., 50, was arrested on charges of felony murder and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment, officials said.

Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son Travis McMichael, 34, have been charged with murder and aggravated assault for the shooting death of unarmed Arbery, 25, in Brunswick, Georgia, back in February.

But shocking cellphone footage – taken by Bryan – was leaked months later, showing the two men chasing and gunning down the victim in the street.

The leak of the video sparked outrage across the nation with LeBron James, Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner all leading cries for the McMichaels to be charged with murder.

Wanda Cooper Cooper said she wants ‘all hands’ involved ‘to be prosecuted to the highest’, telling Dr Phil she ‘strongly believes’ Bryan was involved.
