Although on-the-job arrests of reporters are rare, Metropolitan Transit Authority police took WFSB-TV reporter Leon Collins and cameraman Pat Driscoll away in handcuffs and charged them with criminal trespassing last week after the two attempted to film footage of trains in a New Haven, Conn., train yard.

Collins said he planned to do a live shot for the 11 o’clock news, reporting on an informational meeting in West Haven, where there are plans to build a new train station.

 A jury acquitted former Galveston County Daily News photographer Nick Adams on Wednesday, more than a year after he was charged with a misdemeanor for allegedly interfering with police by refusing to stop taking pictures of an arrest during the city’s Mardi Gras festivities.

Adams, now with the Appeal-Democrat [Marysville] in Northern California, was arrested in February 2007 after a League City, Texas, police officer told him to stop taking photographs.
