Al Roker Posts Twitter Pics of Jury Duty
Al Roker has set folks atwitter by taking pictures from jury duty and posting them on his Twitter page.
The Today show weather man posted this picture from the jury assembly room of a New York courthouse Thursday morning. The photo shows prospective jurors, which is not allowed, a court official told TMZ.
Roker responded via Twitter that a court official told him pictures were only prohibited in the courtroom, and thus the photos he snapped in the assembly room and jury lounge were OK.
"So everyone is clear, I am NOT taking pictures in the courtroom," Roker wrote. "I am in the jury lounge. So folks need to lighten up.
"I'm not breaking laws...just trying to share the experience of jury duty," he continued. "One that I think is important and everyone should take part in."
Roker poked fun at TMZ for following his Twitter page, but vowed to cease his photography. "Heading to a courtroom," he wrote. "No pictures."
