Journalist arrested in Fargo for standing on a dike*

FARGO, N.D. (AP) – A CNN journalist and seven other people have been arrested for standing on top of sandbag levees in the Fargo area.

Fargo Police Sgt. Ross Renner didn’t have many details of the journalist’s arrest, but said the man appeared to be taking pictures at the time.

He says officers made the arrests Wednesday and Thursday after seeing people climb up on the dikes. Renner says police will arrest anyone they see on top of a dike out of concern for people’s safety and the integrity of the levees. He says it’s likely all those arrested have been released.
