VIDEO: Jogger Arrested In Texas For Jaywalking

Amanda Jo Stephen is detained by police on Thursday during a run in Austin, Texas

 

Original Story: Runner sent to jail Thursday but later released. A female runner in Austin, Texas, was arrested by local police on Thursday night after she was allegedly caught jaywalking. Although details are yet unclear, the event was caught on smartphone camera by a bystander. TheAustin American-Statesman reported that police arrested the woman for not identifying herself.

 

According to the newspaper, police said Amanda Jo Stephen, 24, disregarded traffic signals at the intersection of West 24th and San Antonio streets as she was running. Officers tried to stop her, according to a police spokeswoman, but she was running with headphones and couldn’t hear them. When they finally stopped her, she “was resisting and wouldn’t provide identification,” the spokeswoman told the newspaper.

Stephen was taken to Travis County Jail but later released.

“I was sitting at the Starbucks at 24th and San Antonio,” said Chris Quintero, the bystander who caught the arrest on camera told The Daily Texan. “Then I hear a cop shout at an innocent girl jogging through West Campus with her headphones on. She repeatedly pleaded with them, saying that she was just exercising and to let her go.”
