Here's an article about his and Lowery's arrest with embedded livetweets & video.

The morning of 8/17, while reporting on efforts of clean up volunteers, Reilly posted photos of police equipment. One of the photos was a picture of orange earplugs, which he incorrectly identified as possible rubber bullets. (He quickly retracted the tweet). This spawned a meme as people on twitter posted photos of innocent objects they sarcastically suspected of being police equipment.
