Judge Bruce Schroeder speaks to the attorneys about how the jury will view evidence as they deliberate during Kyle Rittenhouse's trial at the Kenosha County Courthouse in Kenosha, Wis., on Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2021.

KENOSHA, Wis. - The judge at Kyle Rittenhouse's murder trial banned MSNBC from the courthouse Thursday after police said they briefly detained a man who had followed the jury bus and may have tried to photograph jurors.

Judge Bruce Schroeder said the man had claimed to be working for MSNBC. The judge said he was stopped because he was following the bus from about a block behind and went through a red light.

NBC News said in a statement that he was a freelancer who received a citation for a traffic violation that took place near the jury vehicle, and he "never contacted or intended to contact the jurors during deliberations, and never photographed or intended to photograph them."
