Journalist detained as Occupy Nashville holds statewide assembly

Another journalist was rounded up in a small batch of Occupy Nashville arrests early Saturday morning, though no charges were filed against him.

Matthew Hamill, who hosts This Occupied Life on 107.1 WRFN-LPFM, Radio Free Nashville, was videotaping the arrests of four Occupy Nashville protesters who marched down Lower Broadway when a Metro police officer grabbed him from behind.

“I’m with the press, I’m with the press,” Hamill says repeatedly, according to video of the incident posted on YouTube. The gathering crowd chants, “He’s media.”

“I don’t care,” the officer replies at least twice.
