Man Known As 'Video Vigilante' Arrested

JULIE E. BISBEE

Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY - An anti-prostitution activist known for videotaping prostitutes and their customers and giving the footage to police and television shows now faces accusations that he set up some of the sexual encounters so he could capture them on camera.

Brian Bates, 34, who is known as the "Video Vigilante," was arrested Tuesday afternoon during a traffic stop in Oklahoma City. An arrest warrant lists criminal complaints of pandering and aiding in prostitution. He called the charges bogus when he was released early Wednesday.

Bates is accused of paying prostitutes to engage in sexual acts with male customers in areas that were easy for Bates to videotape, but hard for police to detect, said Capt. Jeffrey Becker.

Two white Oklahoma City police officers, one of them wielding a baton, try to subdue a black suspect lying on the ground in this video image from footage released on Wednesday. Both officers faced disciplinary investigation after the videotape showed them using batons, pepper spray and physical beating to subdue the suspect. The arrest was filmed by Brian Bates, a self-described video vigilante.
