Note (5/26/2017, 7:25 p.m.): This is an updated and revised version of a story originally posted Sunday evening and amended roughly an hour and a half after that. (You can read that amended version here.) The initial version erroneously stated that Tommy Robinson had already been charged with contempt of court, whereas, according to court officials, this did not occur until his appearance the following day.

A Rebel Media personality recently arrested for filming in and around a courthouse in Canterbury, England, has been given a suspended three-month jail sentence for contempt of court.

Police had arrested Tommy Robinson, the founder and former member of the English Defence League — an anti-Islamic, far-right organization he departed after it became overly radicalized by neo-Nazis — at home on May 10 at 4:30 a.m. local time. Robinson began broadcasting a live Periscope video in the midst of his arrest, but was told to desist from filming shortly after he started.
