# Had young Geraldo Rivera arrested in 1970s student protest, when he was known as Jerry Rivers

Snopes has a piece that suggests he was never known by that name. It was posted here on FR a while back:

That said, I'd be thrilled if Rumsfeld could arrest him again so FOX could get someone decent and actually conservative on the weekend. This should be a good book!

This is, according to Geraldo Rivera, but I think he is full of crap....

I personally know, at least 3 people who were classmates with Geraldo Riveria when he was in law school in brooklyn.

They said they called him Jerry, and he referred to himself as Jerry, they also all claimed he did use the name "Rivers", (though one of them, says he would sometimes call himself different names, like Rivera, Riviera,). Most of the time, he was referred to as "Rivers"....

One of the guys who was in his class and knew him, also said that Geraldo Rivera passed himself off as spanish and jewish, depending on the situation and whom he was dealing with....

Ironically, only one of them, actually disliked him, one of them was indifferent to him but had nothing bad to say, and the 3rd one, actually did like him, and said he seemed like a good guy.

I'm not to keen on trusting Geraldo Rivera on his name claims....
