Temple student Ian Van Kuyk was arraigned this week on charges of obstruction, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct. Van Kuyk, a film and media arts major, was arrested by Philadelphia police last month after he photographed a routine traffic stop in front of his apartment building for a photojournalism course and refused to stop when officers asked him to stop taking pictures.

The officers allegedly pushed, shoved, and threw Van Kuyk to the ground before handcuffing him. Van Kuyk’s girlfriend, who tried to rescue his camera, was also charged with obstruction and disorderly conduct.
