Photojournalist Tyson Heder Released From Prison

Freelance photojournalist Tyson Heder was released from prison late Friday after he was charged with battery on a peace officer, assault on a peace officer and resisting arrest.

While the “Free Journalist Tyson Heder Now” said Heder’s bail was $20,000, National Lawyers Guild executive vice-president and attorney Carol Sobel told 89.3 KPCC it was set at $10,000.

Heder posted the following message (and photo) on the Facebook group:

“I can’t thank you guys enough for the support. This page embarrasses me a little, but I get it and I’m very proud of my friends and family. I’m only out on bail because of them and I look forward to proving the charges against me to be completely and thoroughly fraudulent. As I’m getting ready for bed I snapped a photo. It’s almost as disgusting as my week was…and yes I shaved the beard(it’ll grow back). Again thank you all so much. It means the world to me. Quite literally. And if someone says to you that the LAPD did a good job this week feel free to share this photo with them. Gonna go sleep in my bed now for the first time since monday night. I look like hell and my body hurts pretty much from head to toe, but rest assured I’m a happy Zoltan tonight…xo to all of you.”
