Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego apologized to a Wall Street Journal reporter who was interviewing people outside of a north Phoenix bank in November when police detained him.
Phoenix police Officer Caleb Zimmerman cuffed and detained Wall Street Journal reporter Dion Rabouin outside of a Chase bank branch after employees there called in a trespass complaint.
Rabouin was on assignment working on a story about banking and approached customers for interviews before they walked in.
According to Rabouin, he talked to bank employees about what he was doing but they never asked him to leave before they called the police.
Police detained Rabouin and submitted a trespass notice but never charged him.
Rabouin recounted on Twitter that Gallego and Chase bank officials both personally apologized for what happened.
