A tipster sends us this AP News alert:

BC-MN–Midwest Flooding-Arrests,0123 CNN journalist, others arrested on Fargo dikes Eds: APNewsNow. 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 didn’t have many details of the journalist’s arrest, but said the man appeared to be taking pictures at the time. He 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 spokeswoman said she had no immediate information about the arrest.

We’re looking into the details of the arrest. As of this morning at 9amET, CNN correspondent Susan Roesgen has been reporting from Fargo. It may have been a CNN photographer who was arrested.
