Video of photojournalist Jerry Nelson being arrested Saturday, Feb 4, at Occupy DC as the camp was being dismantled. The officer says he was identified as someone who had assaulted another Occupier. In my discussions with occupiers and local journalists in DC, many knew Nelson and spoke highly of him.

See a full list of journalists arrested at Occupy events nationwide.

Mr. Nelson describes himself this way on his Huffington Post bio: “Jerry Nelson is a nationally recognized photojournalist. His work has appeared in a wide variety of publicaitons [sic] and news outlets including USAToday, CNN, Upsurge, CBS, Dream Row, Earthwalkers and others. He photographs and licenses images for all manner of commercial and editorial use as well as selling through this website. When not traveling, he is available for portraits, events and concerts.”
