Let me first say, I had my suspicions that something like this might happen, having been a delegate for Dr. Paul in 2008. I decided to video tape the proceedings to assure a fair caucus for everyone in attendance.
Before the caucus began, I was told, by the then acting chairman, to turn off my video camera (which was in plain view, mounted on a tripod in the bleachers). I immediately shouted "TRANSPARENCY" and about half the gymnasium started booing at the chairman's demands. The chairman then instructed the police to have me removed. I was sitting about half way up the bleachers. Two policemen made their way up and confronted me. They told me to stop recording or I would be arrested. The whole time, the place was booing them AND the chairman. Romney, Paul, Santorum and Gingrich supporters alike seemed to be expressing their discontent. I ignored the officer's intimidating demands and continued to tape as if to say "if you want me to take this camera down you're going to have to arrest me".After about a minute of staring me down they decided to retreat to the floor and call for back up.
Twenty minutes later many police arrived and made their presence very well known. We were told the caucus would not continue until all cameras were turned off. I decided at that time to turn off my camera so the proceeding could begin. There must have been 4 or 5 officers keeping their eyes on me to make sure I did not start taping again. When the caucus began, the shenanigans started. As soon as I realized the fix was in, I reached for the camera and started taping again. The whole place was yelling "Brent Stafford!", "Point of order!" and "Division!" but the chairman ignored everyone that was not associated with the Santorum campaign. By this time the police had noticed I was taping again and they came after me. Again, the place started booing while the arrest took place and it turned into utter chaos.
I was hand-cuffed in the bleachers and escorted to a "patty wagon" that was obviously just brought in to accommodate me, and others if need be. The next thing I know, I see Brent Stafford entering the vehicle with hand cuffs. We were eventually taken to St. Peters Police Department and charged with "Trespassing" and released without bond. The police confiscated my camera and said they needed it as evidence. I must add, the St. Peters police officers that arrested and transported me conducted themselves in a very professional manner.
