BREAKING: Journalist Jack Posobiec Detained in Davos While Covering World Economic Forum (VIDEO)

Journalist Jack Posobiec and his film crew were detained in Switzerland on Monday, while covering the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Posobiec posted a video of him and his crew surrounded by armed police who were arguing with him about whether or not he had a right to film the interaction.

Eventually, he agrees to put the phone away and stop filming.

“They said we were ‘suspicious’ because we were filming at the entrance,” Posobiec told Timcast.

The journalist and crew were released after independent reporter Savanah Hernandez showed up and began filming. They had been detained for roughly one hour.

Following their release, Posobiec joked about the situation, urging followers to purchase a My Pillow — as his promotion of the company has become a meme.

“When you get detained by WEF Police and thrown into Davos lockup you really want to make sure you get the best night’s sleep in the whole wide world from promocode Poso!” Posobiec tweeted.

Earlier in the day, Posobiec  had appeared on Steve Bannon’s War Room show, live from Davos.

The annual World Economic Forum is expected to be attended by approximately 2,500 global leaders from business and politics. The theme of this year’s meeting is “History at a Turning Point: Government Policies and Business Strategies.”
