Petition Demands Arrest of David Gregory, Host of NBC's 'Meet the Press' THR

A petition urging the arrest of NBC News host David Gregory has been picking up signatures, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which reports that 11,000 people had signed it as of Thursday.

Gregory is under investigation by Washington, D.C., police for displaying a high-capacity gun magazine during an interview on Sunday's "Meet the Press," as previously reported.

The petition, which is posted on the White House's We the People site, says, "David Gregory is not above the law; he is a journalist, and must be held accountable to the same law as every other person.” It adds, "We the People demand that he be formally charged for violation of this law on 'Meet The Press.'"
