According to the judge, a man named James G. (or J) Morrison, who claimed to be a producer for MSNBC, who said he was working for an MSNBC executive named Irene Byon in New York, was stopped Wednesday evening by local police as he was following the bus transporting jurors to and from the courthouse in his car.
The bus, the judge explained, has covered windows so that jurors will not see protests for or against either side in the trial as they arrive at the courthouse, and will not be intimidated or influenced.
The judge explained that Morrison had driven his car through a red light as he followed the jury bus, and was stopped by local police. Morrison allegedly told police he had been following the jury bus on instructions from Byon, and had been “taken in” for further questioning.
The Kenosha Police Department tweeted, "Last night a person who is alleging to be affiliated with a national media outlet was briefly taken into custody and issued several traffic related citations. Police suspect this person was trying to photograph jurors."

The incident is being investigated, and therefore MSNBC has been banned from the courthouse for the remainder of the proceedings.
Judge Schroeder called it an “extremely serious matter,” especially considering we are entering day four of deliberations and awaiting a verdict from the jury.
According to the Kenosha Marshal, some of the jury members are afraid to announce a verdict because they are concerned with their names being leaked and the backlash they will face, along with their families.
