Echoing the arrests of the Huffington Post's Ryan Reilly and the Washington Post's Wesley Lowery earlier this week, three reporters said they were briefly handcuffed and detained by police. Other reporters said officers threatened them with mace, while one radio reporter caught an officer's threat to shoot him on tape.

Three journalists -- Neil Munshi of the Financial Times, Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated and Rob Crilly of the Telegraph -- tweeted that they were briefly detained and handcuffed by Missouri highway police Capt. Ron Johnson. Munshi emphasized that the three of them were held by police but were not arrested.






Separately, MSNBC's Chris Hayes and the Huffington Post's Amanda Terkel both said that police officers threatened them with mace.

A reporter for KARG Argus Radio, whom the Huffington Post identified as Mustafa Hussein, also captured an officer's threat against him while recording a live stream of the protests.

"Get the fuck out of here," an officer can be heard yelling, although audio of the incident isn't entirely clear. "You get that light off, or you're getting shelled with this."

Hussein then asked a second officer, who identified himself as Captain Todd, to give him the name of the officer who he said threatened him by yelling "get the fuck out of here or I will shoot you with this." Captain Todd did not provide the officer's name but said he would follow up with the reporter.
