As Twitchy reported, Roger Stone was arrested in the early morning hours on January 25, and CNN just happened to be there an hour ahead of time staking out Stone’s house with a camera truck to catch the whole thing on video. Reportedly there were more than two dozen members of law enforcement and some 17 vehicles on site to take Stone into custody.

Stone was released on bond, and he’s since released his own surveillance video of the arrest from his home’s security system. Sure, think whatever you like about Roger Stone, but seriously? Multiple FBI agents with semiautomatic rifles drawn at his front door? Seems a bit heavy-handed if you ask us.

Even Sen. Lindsey Graham wrote a letter to the FBI asking if the FBI’s tactics were warranted in this case.

Nope, no heads up, it was just great work by CNN’s reporters that they knew to be there with cameras rolling.
