William "Roddie" Bryan, the man who filmed the now-viral murder of unarmed Black jogger, Ahmaud Arbery, has revealed that he has been receiving death threats.

The video was leaked to the public more than two months after the shooting, finally led to the eventual arrest of Travis and Gregory McMichael, who are now charged with Arbery's murder.

"I am not feeling safe at all … I haven't felt safe in at least 3-to-5 days now," Bryan said. "Like Amy (Bryan's fiancee) has said, the threats have been real."

The two men who were arrested, implicated him in the killing claiming that he had first tried to "block" Arbery with his vehicle but was unsuccessful.

But he denies any involvement:

"I had nothing to do with it. I'm trying to get my life back to normal, and it's been smeared for the last week," Bryan said. "I was told I was a witness and I'm not sure what I am, other than receiving a bunch of threats."
