Journalist Jailed For Not Turning Over Footage
(AP) SAN FRANCISCO A freelance journalist and blogger was taken into federal custody in San Francisco Tuesday for refusing to hand over unpublished footage of a protest of anarchists vandalizing a police car.
Joshua Wolf, 24, could be in jail until July, when a federal grand jury investigating the year-old incident expires.
The grand jury is looking into a July 2005 demonstration in San Francisco's Mission District organized by anarchists against the Group of Eight international economic conference in Scotland.
A police car was set on fire during a clash between officers and demonstrators.
Federal prosecutors say the vandalism could be a federal crime because the Police Department receives federal funds.
