"Current situation. #Louisville" Photo: Jorge Ventura/Daily Caller via Twitter

Geoffrey Ingersoll, editor-in-chief of the Daily Caller, wrote via Twitter that two reporters were arrested by Louisville Metro Police while covering protests that followed the grand jury decision not to charge police officers for the killing of 26-year-old Breonna Taylor.

Why it matters: Louisville Metro Police Department has not shared a precise number of arrests, but the Courier Journal reports that LMPD spokesperson Lamont Washington said around 2am ET on Thursday that nearly "100” people were detained.

What they’re saying: The journalists, Shelby Talcott and Jorge Ventura, were arrested despite "reporting for an accredited media outlet and ... operating in the capacity of press." Both reporters live-tweeted the events:

  • Talcott posted a thread, first saying: "Police are corralling everyone in," along with a video. She followed: "They have us all on the ground right now," and wrote, "police are taking people and putting them in zip tie cuffs."
  • Ventura tweeted at 10:50pm on Wednesday: "Just got arrested by #Louisville PD."
  • He announced his release via Twitter at 1:20pm Thursday.
  • "I am being charged with two misdemeanors related to breaking curfew & unlawful assembly while reporting on the ground in #Louisville," Ventura wrote midday Thursday.

Worth noting: Two LMPD officers were shot in the downtown area of Louisville, the department confirmed. Both sustained non-life-threatening injuries, and there is one suspect in custody.

Girlfriend told police Nashville man was building bombs year before explosion

The girlfriend of Anthony Warner, the man who is believed to have detonated the bomb in Nashville on Christmas Day, warned police officers in August 2019 that he "was building bombs in the RV trailer at his residence," according to police reports obtained by The Tennessean.

Why it matters: Although the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Warner "was not on our radar" before the explosion, the report from the Metro Nashville Police Department "shows that local and federal authorities were aware of alleged threats he had made," The Tennessean writes.

The wealthy exodus from superstar cities

Pandemic-induced remote work is chipping away at a recent trend of Americans staying put — but only for the well-off.

Why it matters: Telework has been lauded as a geographic equalizer, allowing talented people from all over the country to go for jobs in superstar coastal metros. But the benefits have largely been limited to wealthier workers — so far.
