ABC Reporter Arrested: Taking Pictures of Senators, Donors

ABC news was working on a story about the funding of the events surrounding the DNC. Reporter Asa Eslocker was taking video and pictures of senators and lobbyists outside of the Brown Palace Hotel. He was on the sidewalk of a public street. He was first informed (falsely perhaps?) that the sidewalk was owned by the hotel and that he had to vacate it. "The sheriff's officer is seen telling Eslocker the sidewalk is owned by the hotel. Later he is seen pushing Eslocker off the sidewalk into oncoming traffic, forcing him to the other side of the street." Soon, a Denver police officer arrived, arrested him, and hauled him off in handcuffs... Police on the scene refused (legally) to tell ABC lawyers the cause of the arrest. Later they informed them that the charges were tresspassing, Interferance, and Refusal to obey a lawful order.

Thanks NordlichReiter for finding the video.
