Vince Lovato is the editor of the Lake County Leader in Polson, Montana, and has been a journalist for 33 years.
When Lovato heard about a car collision last Wednesday, he and his wife, a reporter for the same paper, drove to the scene of the accident to gather information and take photographs.
Instead of being allowed to take photographs, a Montana Highway Patrol trooper put Lovato in handcuffs and arrested him for obstructing a peace officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Lovato is 53 years old with over three decades of experience in journalism, yet this is the first incident one can find of Lovato being arrested for doing his job.
