Yon Pomrenze Arrest
On March 25, 2014, Yon and Connor Fieldman Boals were arrested and charged with criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and obstruction of governmental administration. The CNN Producers then, were arrested at the World Trade Center site after allegedly trying to push through a gate and climb a fence.
They were carrying a GoPro camera and a camera on a tripod and they first tried to talk their way through by telling the officer that if a 16-year-old boy could get in, they should be able to as well. They then walked towards the PATH station entrance and Boals was seen trying to climb the fence there before he was stopped. The duo then tried to push their way through a gate, and were arrested at that point.
A CNN spokeswoman said the producers “were not asked to sneak onto the WTC site. They were in the surrounding area to do a story about the recent incidents at the WTC and other sites, and the notion that daredevils are being drawn to them.”
The charges were dismissed months later by the court and Connor Fieldman Boals was asked by the judge to do two days of community service because of his misdemeanor case. Pomrenze’s case was dismissed outright after prosecutors said he only shot video during the incident.
