Two reporters arrested while covering the protests in Ferguson have been charged with trespassing and interfering with a police officer after about a year.
Monday, Wesley Lowery said he'd received a summons saying he failed to comply with "repeated commands to immediately exit" a Ferguson McDonald's. Just hours later, Ryan Reilly confirmed he'd also been charged.
You may remember Lowery, Reilly and other reporters were working from that McDonald's when officers told them to evacuate; the reporters then began recording the officers and Lowery and Reilly were arrested. (Video via CNN)
