On October 31, 2013, a passenger named Kenneth Suitter was arrested by St. Louis County Police officers for allegedly trespassing after a St. Louis Metro Transit security officer attempted to stop Suitter from recording. Three days after video of the arrest was uploaded to YouTube, Metro responded with this statement on Facebook: "Video surveillance reveals that what we saw on YouTube was the last six minutes of more than 20 minutes of the videographer putting the video camera in customers faces and attracting unwanted attention. The safety of our customers and our employees is our top priority." Dozens of people have demanded on Metro's Facebook page that they release the mysterious fourteen minutes of video justifying the arrest. Metro has yet to release the alleged fourteen minutes of video, however, and has refused to make further comment regarding the incident since November 4, 2013. On November 18, 2013, the St. Louis County Police Department's MetroLink Unit's commanding officer sent Suitter a letter saying that a review of the arrest revealed that St. Louis Metro Transit had failed to inform the St. Louis County Police of a change in Metro's filming and photography policy and that as a result of Metro's failure to inform the St. Louis County Police, they were dropping the charges against Suitter.
