Minnesota State Police arrested CNN reporter Omar Jimenez and his crew while reporting live on-air from the protests in Minneapolis. A fellow CNN reporter, Josh Campell were also in the area and approached by police. "I identified myself..." they said, 'OK, you're permitted to be in the area,'" recounted Campbell, who is white. "I was treated much differently than Jimenez was."
Since the arrest in the early morning hours, Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz has reportedly deeply apologized for what happened and is currently working on getting the CNN crew released from police custody immediately.
