The presenter and reporter Brandon Todd, who witnessed Fry walking out of the station before being arrested, said the man was screaming about "high treason," and that he believed he had been clearly wronged and that someone was trying to kill him.
"It's not very clear what his message was," according to Todd.
Fry started crying when the police put him in custody, Todd said.
According to the police, the suspect was annoyed by an officer-related shooting that happened elsewhere.

Fry left behind boxes with ruffles, which he then scattered outside the television station, and a suspicious bag.
The police called the anti-explosive squad to inspect the items, which later left everything clear.
The 34-year-old man was taken to a hospital for a medical evaluation. Later he was put in jail accused of criminal behavior.
Authorities say they do not believe the suspect is targeting the media.
The records of Denton County show that Fry has been held in prison more than two dozen times since 2003 for a variety of charges, including public intoxication and arson.
