Jimenez and his crew were in Minneapolis covering the tumultuous aftermath in the city after video emerged of a police officer fatally kneeling on George Floyd’s throat.
The Minnesota State Patrol indicates that Jimenez and his crew were released quickly:
In the course of clearing the streets and restoring order at Lake Street and Snelling Avenue, four people were arrested by State Patrol troopers, including three members of a CNN crew. The three were released once they were confirmed to be members of the media.
