Politicians have always wrestled with annoying journalists and their annoying questions. Until now, that is.
Tom Price, Trump's Health and Human Services Secretary, knows how to deal with pesky reporters. Arrest' em. Slap the cuffs on 'em. Lock 'em up, lock 'em up.
Dan Heyman, a reporter for Public News Service, got the treatment.
Price was visiting West Virginia along with White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, to hear about the state's plans to deal with an opioid addiction crisis.
Heyman was following Price and Conway as they walked through the Capitol, trying to ask the official whether or not the Republican's new health care billwould allow domestic violence to be considered a pre-existing condition.
"This is my job, this is what I'm supposed to do," Heyman said, according to the Washington Post. "I think it's a question that deserves to be answered. I think it's my job to ask questions and I think it's my job to try to get answers."
But, while Heyman was trying to get answers out of Price, a Capitol officer stopped him, handcuffed him and arrested him — later charging him with "willful disruption of state government processes," the Post reported. He was released on a $5,000 bail.
According to a criminal complaint, Heyman "was causing a disturbance by yelling questions at Ms. Conway and Secretary Price," and security agents were "forced to remove him a couple of times from the area."
