News Photographer Arrested After Photographing Police Dog Bite

Foster's Staffer Charged With Disorderly Conduct

POSTED: 1:47 pm EDT October 28, 2004

DURHAM, N.H. -- A New Hampshire newspaper wants to know what prompted police to arrest a photographer at Wednesday night's Red Sox celebration near the University of New Hampshire.

Foster's Daily Democrat photographer Aaron Rohde said he was thrown to the ground with his camera gear, then held in a van for 45 minutes after he took a photo of a police dog biting the pant leg of someone in the crowd.

Rohde said that after he took the photo, a state trooper began pushing him away. Rohde said he identified himself, then took a photo of the trooper, who refused to identify himself and then knocked the photographer down and handcuffed him.

Rohde said originally he was told he was being arrested for assaulting a police officer, but he was charged with disorderly conduct.

Foster's Executive Editor Rodney Doherty said he does not expect his newspeople to interfere with police, but he said it appears Rohde was arrested because police did not want pictures of the dog

Both cops and the protesters/press are getting more and more aggressive lately, and true it catches the innocents in the crossfire.
