‘Daily Show’ Jordan Klepper

Busted During Atlanta Protest

For Undocumented Students

EXCLUSIVE

Comedian and former ‘Daily Show’ correspondent Jordan Klepper just got busted by cops in Atlanta during a protest to support undocumented students.

Klepper and several others disrupted a Board of Regents meeting at the state capitol. We’re told Klepper and the others refused to leave the gathering … so cops stepped in. Someone on scene tells us the comedian was shooting his documentary series, “Klepper,” when the incident went down.  

As for the protest … we’re told it was against a policy barring undocumented students from enrolling or working on campus. 

A video taken from the protest shows Klepper and others locking hands as cops place demonstrators in handcuffs. 

Jordan is the former host of Comedy Central’s satirical late-night show, ‘The Opposition,’ which was canceled last summer after its first season. He’s also appeared on almost 200 episodes of Comedy Central’s ‘Daily Show.’

We’ve reached out to a rep for Klepper … so far, no word back.

Story developing …
