This is apparently obstruction of a legal process and interference with a 'peace officer'

Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now! on Pacifica Radio 90.7 FM, was arrested on Monday by police at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, MN. She was on the convention floor when she heard that two of her producers were arrested. She went outside to find out what was going on when she was arrested herself.

Goodman was charged with obstruction of a legal process and interference with a "peace officer." Her two producers, Sharif Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar, were charged with felony riot while covering a demonstration where protesters and an Associated Press photographer were arrested.
