(KTVI)- Two national reporters were among 10 people arrested in Ferguson Wednesday night. Reporters with both the Washington Post and The Huffington Post were taken into custody at a fast food restaurant near the protests.

Wesley Lowery and Ryan Reilly were working and charging their devices when SWAT team officers arrived to clear the area.

Both men say they weren't moving fast enough for the officers. One of them was slammed into a soda machine because he was confused about which exit door to use.

Both reporters quickly tweeted about their arrests, detention and subsequent release without any charges.
