The Washington Post uploaded video of its reporter Wesley Lowery being arrested by police in Ferguson, MO on Wednesday night.
Lowery and The Huffington Post's Ryan Reilly were working at a McDonald's when they were violently assaulted and detained by a SWAT unit before being released.
In the video, a police officer can be heard saying, "Get your stuff, let's go," and, "Stop videotaping, let's grab our stuff and go."
It is legal to film police activity. Lowery and Reilly were given no concrete reason for their arrest.
