A man is arrested for filming a cop performing a traffic stop, and the police spokesman had this to say:

whatever his constitutional protections may have been, that decision does not come without consequences, and if those decisions and those actions put the public at risk or put a law enforcement officer at risk, we are prepared to pursue criminal charges and seek judicial review of that action.
So a cop's perceived risk level trumps your constitutional rights. Of course, I also find it difficult to understand how a man filming you places you at risk.
