Two videographers filming a Wednesday night protest in downtown Los Angeles were detained and given “failure to disperse” citations after police declared the gathering unlawful.

Singh said some protesters fled into a hotel, while others were told by officers to sit down.

He said he and Beckner-Carmitchel were then targeted for serving as press at the event and recording the officers’ actions.

Stacy Spell, an LAPD spokesman, confirmed that two people had been cited and released on charges of failing to disperse.

However, if members of the media leave that designated space, they are subject to all dispersal orders,” the LAPD wrote.
