CNN reporter Omar Jimenez was arrested while covering protests in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

During a live broadcast Friday, Jimenez and his crew were arrested on air by Minnesota State Patrol after identifying themselves and showing their press credentials.

In a re-played clip, the arrest was shown on camera.

"We are live on the air at the moment. This is the four of us, we are one team. Just put us back where you want us, just let us know. Wherever you want us, just let us know," Jimenez tells a row of police officers before an officer comes behind him with handcuffs. Do you mind telling me why Im under arrest, sir?"

Jimenez and his crew, who were covering the protests that were prompted by the death of George Floyd, were later released and spoke about the experience.
