Officers arrest Venezuela radio journalist minutes after he criticizes them on air

The son of a provincial Venezuelan journalist says members of the national investigative police showed up at his father's radio station and arrested him 10 minutes after he complained on the air that they were driving around in luxury cars.

Danny Donaire says Victor Hugo Donaire remained in jail Friday, a day after four plainclothes officers interrupted his morning show at Radio Los Morros in the Guarico state capital of San Juan.

Donaire said his 50-year-old father was being held on charges of resisting arrest and mistreating a public official.

A police detective referred a reporter inquiring about the case to prosecutors, who could not immediately be reached.

Venezuela's socialist government has consolidated control of most news media but an on-air arrest is unusual.
