Producers with ABC News’ investigative unit are currently on assignment in Denver, looking in the role that big money donors play at the Democratic convention.
Today, one of those producers, Asa Eslocker, was arrested outside the swank Brown Palace Hotel, where Democratic senators were meeting with donors at a private party.
According to ABC News, Mr. Eslocker is being charged with “tresspass, interference, and failure to follow a lawful order.”
More from ABC News’ report of the incident:
Eslocker was put in handcuffs and loaded in the back of a police van which headed for a nearby police station.
Video taken at the scene shows a hotel security guard, wearing the uniform of a Boulder County sheriff, ordering Eslocker off the sidewalk in front of the hotel, to the side of the entrance.
The sheriff’s officer is seen telling Eslocker the sidewalk is owned by the hotel. Later he is seen pushing Eslocker off the sidewalk into oncoming traffic, forcing him to the other side of the street.
