El Paso Cop Arrests Journalists for Doing Their Job
An ABC-7 crew covering a crash on I-10 on Monday unwillingly became part of the news. Motorists stuck in traffic witnessed veteran journalist Darren Hunt and photojournalist Ric Dupont being handcuffed and detained. The two were interviewing people from the opposite lane of I-10 on the shoulder when a police sergeant accused them of interfering with police. Darren and Ric were taken to the Westside Regional Command Center and released within a few minutes. The El Paso Police Department has launched an investigation.
