Dash-cam footage of Birdwell traffic stop

This recording by the Drug Task Force in-car camera should have an audio track, but it was disabled, court records allege. If the audio worked, it would reveal what agent David Jones and driver Mike Birdwell said during the stop, as well as Jones' side of a series of telephone calls with another agent who was in touch with DTF Director Mike Hall. Jones pulled Birdwell over on Interstate 75 for reckless driving and following too closely. Jones testified at Birdwell's trial that the pharmacist was in a "road rage" and that he was worried about his safety.
