Twitter users vent anger at police after reporters are arrested in McDonald's and TV crews are fired upon as violent protests over unarmed black teenager's shooting spiral out of control

Journalists reporting from race riots following the shooting of an unarmed black teenager say they were arrested and 'assaulted' by police.

Two reporters were arrested and TV crews came under fire from tear gas and rubber bullets while covering protests over the shooting of Michael Brown, 18, leading to the Twitter hashtag #mediablackout to start trending.

Washington Post staffer Wesley Lowery and Huffington Post justice reporter Ryan J. Reilly were both arrested inside a McDonald's in the city after a SWAT team stormed the fast food restaurant.
