As day three of jury deliberations in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial began, Judge Bruce Schroeder banned MSNBC from his courtroom for the duration of the trial, after an employee claiming to be a producer with the outlet reportedly followed the van taking jurors home on Wednesday evening and was pulled over after running a red light.

“No one from MSNBC news will be permitted in this building … this is an extremely serious matter and will be referred to the proper authorities,” said Schroeder.

The judge added that the employee taken into custody was James J. Morrison who claimed to be working for Irene Byon of NBC in New York.

According to TownHall‘s Julio Rosas, Kenosha police reported that someone was following the bus carrying the Rittenhouse jurors last night “while claiming to work for MSNBC,” adding that the matter is under investigation.
