Adam Schrader, 26, was arrested while covering the Standing Rock protests on Oct. 27, despite identifying himself as press to arresting officers. This is the state’s justification for his arrest, which Schrader received Monday, Nov. 21, 2016.

Schrader, a stringer for the New York Daily News, was previously an editor at The Dallas Morning News and a Trending News Curator at Facebook. The state denied his application for a public defender, calling the application “incomplete.”
