Watch: CNN Crew Arrested by MN State Police Live on Air During Riot Coverage

Things are melting down in Minneapolis.

The Minnesota Governor has activated the National Guard and the state police have been deployed to try to control the situation.

But the state police may have just stoked the situation instead by arresting a CNN crew live on air. Police claim that the crew didn’t move out of the riot area when they were told. The CNN crew said they were trying to be compliant with the police and that’s what it appears like from the video. But then they were arrested while the cameras rolled.

They arrested the reporter, Omar Jiminez on air, but also arrested the whole crew including the producer and the cameraman.
 


According to CNN’s Brooke Baldwin, the crew, in addition to Jiminez, included producer Bill Kirkos and the cameraman Leonel Mendez.

The Governor said he would intervene, called it unacceptable and apologized.
