Update: Arrested student photographers released

The two University of Kentucky student photographers and photo adviser who were arrested on suspicion of rioting outside the Republican National Convention Monday were released without being charged Wednesday, according to an article in the Kentucky Kernel, the student newspaper.

Student photographers Ed Matthews and Britney McIntosh and Kernel photo adviser Jim Winn were detained for two nights at the Ramsey County Adult Detention Center in St. Paul, Minn. They were released without being charged with a crime but an investigation is continuing.

The two student photographers are on the staff of the Kentucky Kernel but they were not covering the Republican National Convention for the paper.
