The unidentified reporter snapped a couple of iPhone pictures of a handcuffed arrestee who was being held face down on the pavement by a police officer, Metro reported in its Wednesday edition.
- "An officer on the scene decided that was a little too much of the First Amendment for him and ordered the iPhotographer out of shooting distance. The iPhotographer held up SJPD press credentials and snapped one more photo. The officer cited the photojournalist for California Vehicle Code Section 21956 (b), which is intended to keep pedestrians from wandering out into unsafe traffic. (Traffic was not a problem since the street was closed at the time, since the suspect was lying next to the road striping in the center of First Street.)"
