CNN journalist, others arrested on Fargo dikes

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- A CNN journalist and seven other people have been arrested for standing on top of sandbag levees in flood areas in the Fargo area.

Fargo Police Sgt. Ross Renner says officers made the arrests Wednesday and Thursday after seeing people climb up on the dikes. Renner says police will continue to arrest anyone they see on top of a dikes out of concern for people's safety and the integrity of the levees. He says it's likely all those arrested have been released.

A CNN spokesman said the cameraman who was arrested was shooting video at the time and was unaware of any restrictions on climbing the dikes. The journalist was released on bail.
