TANK PLANT-JOURNALISTS DETAINED
Ohio newspaper files federal suit against government after journalists detained at tank plant

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, April 4, 2014 5:29 PM EDT
TOLEDO, Ohio


An Ohio newspaper has filed a federal lawsuit against the government after a reporter and a photographer were detained and had cameras confiscated at a tank plant.

The lawsuit was filed Friday in Toledo by The Blade newspaper, reporter Tyrel Linkhorn and photographer Jetta Fraser. It says the journalists were illegally detained by military police for about an hour last week in Lima and their constitutional rights were violated.

Military police told the journalists photography of the tank plant was prohibited.

The lawsuit says the photographer was handcuffed and threatened. It was filed against four military police officers, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and a plant official. It seeks money and an order prohibiting the military from interfering with lawful photography of the plant.

A message seeking comment from the Department of Defense hasn't been returned.
