Police have admitted arresting a technology journalist covering an IT security conference after yesterday denying it.
The Queensland Police Media Unit last night flatly denied a claim by Fairfax journalist Ben Grubb that he was arrested at AusCERT in Surfers Paradise.
@bengrubb was not arrested. He was interviewed briefly by police, the unit said on Twitter, referencing Grubb’s handle on the website.
This morning the unit posted another update saying it had made a mistake.
