Is resisting arrest NOT against the law? Every person in this country, legally or illegally, should know that if you don't comply with what a cop is telling you to do your probably going to get hurt. Another thing, If your going to live in this country, LEARN to speak English. In this case, I think the Police did their job. You think you can do it better, then get out there!

As someone in the industry, I hope you guys realize just how lucky you were not to have a reporter killed live on air. Never ever go live on the side of a highway. The yellow vest makes it legal, not smart or responsible. Learn from this and see to it that nobody on your staff ever does it again.

This is why reporters should not stop on a slick road to talk about a slick road. Yep, its bad, stay home. You don't have to do what your telling others not to do. He might have gotten distracted because of the report.

It is always better to be safe when it comes to our children! The back roads get bad so quick! High school has kids driving too! I had rather have to make up a snow day than for a child to be injured or even worse killed trying to get home!

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Even prominent people have ugly secrets, they just don’t get told as often. Maybe this man’s arrest will save some poor kid from a similar fate.
