Jimenez was reporting on the Minneapolis protests during CNN’s New Day with Alisyn Camerota and John Berman when police in tactical gear approached and surrounded him. The crew was allegedly arrested “because they were told to move and didn’t.” Jimenez asked officers where they would like him to move and complied before being taken away in handcuffs.
