Manuel was singled out from the other journalists and arrested. He was charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing traffic, but none of the reporters he was with were arrested, only Manuel. Manuel’s bond was paid immediately, but when friends and family arrived to pick him up, jail employees said that he was on a 48 hour “I.C.E. Hold”, and he would not be released. When the Shelby County Sheriff was confronted about this, he denied it, repeating the claim that local law enforcement does not collaborate with I.C.E. police. So his family contacted the jail a second time, and were told once again that Manuel was on a 48 hour I.C.E. hold.
