From the clip shared on social media, CNN reporter Omar Jimenez and his camera team clearly identified themselves when the police accosted them, but they got handcuffed and were walked away from the riot site.

Asked why the reporters got arrested, the police claimed that they had told the CNN crew to back away from the site and refused. This has stirred heated reactions, especially after President Trump threatened the protesters who have brought attention to the racial situations in the United States following the police murder of George Floyd.
