Filmmaker arrested during city protest
Sunday, September 9th 2007, 4:00 AM
Alex Jones, a fringe filmmaker who believes President Bush was responsible for 9/11, was arrested last night by the NYPD.
Jones, 33, of Austin, Tex., was charged with operating a bullhorn without a permit during a protest at Sixth Ave. and 48th St. about 8:30 p.m., cops said. Two other people were issued summonses for disorderly conduct during Jones' arrest, police said.
Cops provided no further details.
But a fellow protester, Lamarr Johnson, 27, of the South Bronx, said the group had seized the opportunity to crash a live TV show featuring Geraldo Rivera at the site. "It was ... guerrilla information warfare," Johnson said.
Jones is closely linked to the 9/11 Truth Movement, which believes the British government carried out the 2005 London subway bombings, among other far-out theories.
