Overview of the Incident: 

It was reported over comms that there might be an incident to look into and report on near the merchant dock.  Naturally, given that is my job, I went over.  I showed by press pass and entered the scene, but was promptly threatened with arrest, despite there being no visible threat, despite this being a public area, and despite my press pass.  I was cuffed and charged with trespassing while trying to get photos.  At no point was any threat communicated to me, aside from a vague 'it may be unsafe.'  It is my job to investigate and report these things, the press shouldn't be arrested for being present.

Naturally, I recorded the entire incident.

[13:46] Brian Caruso says, "Irrelevant Sir, you were told to leave multiple times for your own safety."
[14:21] Quilp'Vlomn Nblek says, "B-but. A pass means I can go in, and-"
[14:26] Quilp'Vlomn Nblek says, "And I'm freelance, I-"
[14:29] Quilp'Vlomn Nblek says, "You-"
[14:50] Brian Caruso says, "That is not the case in this instance, Sir. If you have a complaint, please file it with the NanoTrasen Public Relations Department."
[15:07] Brian Caruso says, "You are being fined in the amount of 200 credits for trespassing, as per standard regulations."
[15:13] Quilp'Vlomn Nblek yells, "You can't do this!"
[16:10] Brian Caruso says, "A moment, while I copy your paperwork."

I later found 10,000 credits and a note in my office.  I believe this was a bribe meant to keep me from reporting the incident.  A picture of the bribe, the paper with it, and my security report are attached.





Did you report it to a Head of Department or IAA? If so, who?: The captain was the one who ordered my arrest.


Actions taken: I complied with the arrest and filed this report.

FROM: Mona Larabie, CCIA Incident Report Processing Office, NTCC Odin

SUBJECT: RE: Incident Report



Upon reviewing this record, the CCIA office has elected to close this report without investigation.

You are reminded as a subcontracted member of the Aurora's crew that you are expected to immediately comply with all Head of Staff instructions, especially in matters of potential security threats. It is noteworthy that in refusing both the Head of Security's order and the Captain's stated request to immediately vacate the area (as indicated in your provided transcript), you would have technically been liable for more severe penalties than you received at the time of your detainment. However, we have elected at this time to not impose any additional financial or disciplinary penalties as a result of this report.

Be aware that the Aurora's crew is required to carry out the orders of the facility's Captain, and that all visiting persons external to NanoTrasen who enter a Company facility agree to abide by our Corporate Regulations to the extent permitted by Federal law. In this case, in light of the provided records and the perceived security threat at the time, we do not find the orders of the Aurora's Command Staff as they pertain to you to have been unreasonable. The safety of our facilities, their crews, and visiting persons external to NanoTrasen are among our highest priorities at all times.

Please refer any additional questions you may have to the Human Resources department, or your designated company liaison.
