CBS News has confirmed that one of the network’s digital campaign journalists, Sopan Deb, has been detained while reporting at the Chicago rally of Donald Trump. The network says it is awaiting further information.

The rally was cancelled due to protests that became physical. Deb described the scene:

In January, at another Trump event in Reno, Deb described being targeted by a Trump supporter who asked the journalist if he was “taking pictures for ISIS.” Deb said he was told “this is America…be glad that you’re here.”
