August 18, 2014 | Bucky Turco

Scott Olson, a veteran photographer who works for Getty Images, was arrested by state police in Ferguson earlier this evening for some reason. Amy K. Nelson has been reporting on the protests and was on scene as troopers zip-tied his wrists. “They said the media is required to be in a certain area,” said Olson, with cameras dangling from his arms, when asked why he was being placed under arrest. Getty released a statement and said it was “committed to ensuring he is able to resume his important work.” (Video: Amy K. Nelson/ANIMALNewYork, Photo: @ryanjreilly)
