Vegas journalist arrested at Trump rally released from jail
LAS VEGAS (AP) —
The journalist arrested at a Tax Day protest at President Donald Trump's signature Las Vegas hotel has been released from jail.
KLAS Vice President and General Manager Lisa Howfield said photojournalist Neb Solomon was freed Saturday night, hours after he was arrested while covering the off-Strip protest for the CBS affiliate.
Police said Solomon was uncooperative and refused to provide his personal identification information at the scene.
He was booked into Clark County jail on two misdemeanors, including trespassing and obstructing.
Police said Solomon was recording footage on private property belonging to the Fashion Show Mall, adjacent to Trump International Hotel.
Howfield defended Solomon as an experienced and respected journalist.
Las Vegas was among 150 cities where protests were held to call on the president to release his tax returns.
