Journalist Arrested While Reporting a Story


I regret to announce that producer and journalist Jim Epstein is being held by US Park Police for video recording an incident at a District of Columbia Taxicab Commission hearing taking place at the US Park Police Building in Anacostia Park. Our attorney is on the scene and reports that Epstein, who was attending the hearing as part of an upcoming story on plans to introduce a medallions system to D.C.'s taxi industry, should be released very shortly.

**Update:  Good news.  Jim has been released from police custody.

More info as we get it.
