A radio reporter taken into custody while covering a demonstration the night two sheriff’s deputies were shot three years ago reached a $700,000 settlement on Tuesday with Los Angeles County.


The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved the payout to Josie Huang, a journalist for NPR affiliate LAist.  “Journalists in Los Angeles County should be able to record police activity in public without fear of unlawful arrest,” Huang said in a statement after the supervisors’ vote. 


“My arrest was traumatic, but I hope that some good can still come of this experience.” Deputies had slammed Huang to the ground September 12, 2020, accusing her of interfering with an arrest.
