Journalists arrested amidst turmoil in Missouri

Ferguson, MO - Washington Post reporter was one of two journalists arrested and thrown in a booking cell while covering the unrest in a St. Louis suburb roiled by protests over an unarmed teen's death at the hands of police, an arrest the newspaper's executive editor called illegal and unjustified.

Wesley Lowery said he was slammed into a soda machine and arrested after recording officers who ordered everyone to leave a McDonald's restaurant in Ferguson, as demonstrations against the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown happened nearby. Also arrested was Huffington Post reporter Ryan Reilly.
