A Florida journalist is out of jail after being arrested while covering a story at a Miami high school.
Forty-year-old Jeffrey Weinsierm, a reporter for a Miami news station, was charged Tuesday with trespassing and resisting arrest while covering a story at Miami central high.
Officials say he had a gun with him, which led to an additional charge of possession of a firearm on school grounds. Detectives acknowledge that Weinsier has a concealed weapons permit, but state law prohibits anyone from being armed at schools.
Weinsier, who was released on $11,000 bond, has denied the charges.
He said, "I've been advised not to say anything, the videotape speaks for itself. I was not trespassing. I was not on school property."
Weinsier had started to carry a gun after receiving death threats for a series on unsanitary conditions at local restaurants.
