A Reporter’s Footage of His Arrest at Occupy Wall Street

Reporter Jared Maslin captured his own arrest on video in the early hours of November 15, while police arrested protesters and cleared Zuccotti Park. He describes his experience (in third person) in a post for The Local East Village

The Local’s reporter, who repeatedly identified himself to the police as a journalist while on the scene, complied with the order and walked north while filming protesters, however (as seen at the 2:11 mark in the video) his progress was stopped by a group of officers blocking the sidewalk at the intersection of Broadway and John Street. One of the officers arrested him using plastic Flexi-Cuffs, even as he continued to identify himself as a journalist and called attention to press credentials hanging from his neck.
