CNN Crew Arrested While Covering Minneapolis Riot (Video)


Minnesota State Patrol officers have arrested CNN journalist Omar Jimenez and two crew members during a live broadcast from protests in Minneapolis, which were sparked by George Floyd’s death.

The three men were later released.

Footage posted to social media on Friday morning shows Jimenez identifying himself as a journalist and telling officers: “We can move back to where you’d like. We are live on the air at the moment.”

Jimenez repeatedly signals that he and his crew will move away from the area and go “wherever you want us.” He then continues his report while two officers hold him by the arms and tell him: “You are under arrest.”
