Police Arrest Black Journalist Recording Altercation During Michigan Proud Boys Rally

A Black reporter in Michigan has been released from police custody after he was arrested while covering a white nationalist group’s rally on Saturday.

According to CNN, Kalamazoo officials have apologized after MLive reporter Samuel Robinson was wrongly arrested in the downtown area as he recorded physical altercations between the alt-right group Proud Boys and counterprotesters this weekend.

With violence escalating between the groups, Robinson tweeted at 12:49 p.m. on Saturday that he barely saw any police intervention. Moments later, police clad in riot gear caught up with the procession and detained the reporter. Robinson, wearing MLive credentials, can be heard pleading with detaining officers that he was a member of the press.

"I'm being arrested now," Robinson said while recording his own arrest. "I'm media, dude. I'm media. I'm with MLive. I'm with MLive.”
