Freelance photographer Tyson Heder is still behind bars after he was assaulted and arrested during the Occupy LA raid early Wednesday morning.

Simone Wilson of the LA Weekly provided an update of the messy scene at the Metropolitan Detention Center:

The situation at the Metropolitan Detention Center — where photojournalist Heder and gobs of other arrestees are being held — is, by all accounts, total chaos.
