Robert Klemko, Sports Illustrated’s Chicago-based NFL reporter and a frequent sports media guest, was arrested in his Lake View condo early Saturday morning, after a Checker taxi driver reported being cabjacked.
Klemko, 27, gained significant media exposure after live Tweeting his "arrest" during the Ferguson riots. He did not turn to social media during today's arrest.
