Another journalist has been arrested at an Occupy movement protest.

Kristyna Wentz-Graff, a photographer for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, was arrested on Wednesday during a rally near the University Of Wisconsin, the paper reported.

Wetz-Graff was photographing other arrests taking place when she was grabbed by the police. The Journal-Sentinel said she texted the newsroom informing them she had been arrested.

A number of other journalists have been arrested by police at Occupy protests around the country. A freelance writer for the New York Times was one of hundreds arrested at the Brooklyn Bridge in late September. Another reporter for an alternative Nashville newspaper actually filmed his own arrest.
