MOSCOW, Idaho — Bryan Kohberger, the criminology Ph.D. student suspected of stabbing four University of Idaho students to death in November, was stopped last month in Indiana while on a cross-country road trip with his father to the family’s home in Pennsylvania, according to body camera footage obtained by Fox News Digital.

A wide-eyed Kohberger could be seen leaning over in the driver’s seat of a white Hyundai Elantra after he was pulled over by an Indiana state trooper at approximately 10:50 a.m. on Dec. 15 in Hancock County, Indiana.

“When you were driving by me there you were a little too close to the back of the semi,” the state trooper tells Kohberger and his father, who is sitting in the passenger seat.

Kohberger appears to reference being previously stopped by a local sheriff’s deputy.

“I’m not going to give you guys another ticket or warning if you just got stopped. Just make sure you’re giving yourself plenty of room,” the state trooper said.

Kohberger and his father were on the way back to the family’s home in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania, where the 28-year-old was arrested by authorities in the early hours of Friday morning.

His father had flown to Washington to join him on the 2,500-mile trip after the fall semester ended in mid-December.

Kohberger lives on Washington State University’s campus in Pullman, Washington, a 10-minute drive from 1122 King Road in Moscow, Idaho, where the four students were stabbed to death in the early morning hours of Nov. 13.

Investigators used DNA to identify Kohberger as the suspect nearly seven weeks after the murders, officials have said.
