Friends and family of Tracy told The Associated Press that he had been in Venezuela since last year making a documentary about the country, which is bitterly divided politically as the socialist heirs of the late President Hugo Chavez struggle to maintain control of a country beset by economic and political turmoil

The Georgetown University English graduate was a story consultant on the 2009 documentary "American Harmony," about competitive barbershop quartet singing, and produced the recent Discovery Channel program "Under Siege," about terrorism and smuggling across the U.S.-Canada border as well the History Channel series "Madhouse," on modified race-car drivers in North Carolina.

"They don't have CIA in custody. They don't have a journalist in custody. They have a kid with a camera," said Aengus James, a friend and associate of Tracy's in Hollywood, California, and director of "American Harmony."

James described Tracy as "fearless" but also somewhat quixotic.
President Nicolas Maduro said Thursday that he personally ordered Timothy Tracy's arrest on suspicion of "creating violence in the cities of this country." Venezuela's interior minister said Tracy was working for U.S. intelligence, paying right-wing youth groups to hold violent demonstrations in order to destabilize the country after Maduro's narrow election win last week.

El graduado de la Universidad de Georgetown era un consultor de argumento en el 2009 documental "Armonía Americana" acerca de la competencia cuarteto, y produjo el programa de Discovery Channel reciente "Under Siege", sobre el terrorismo y el contrabando a través de la frontera Estados Unidos-Canadá y History Channel la serie "Madhouse", modificando autos de carrera en Carolina del Norte.

"Ellos no tienen un agente de la CIA en prisión. Ellos no tienen un periodista en prisión. Ellos tienen un joven con una cámara", dijo Aengus James, amigo y asociado de Tracy en Hollywood, California, y director de "American Harmony . "

James Tracy describe como "valiente".

El presidente Nicolas Maduro, dijo el jueves que él personalmente ordenó el arresto de Timothy Tracy bajo la sospecha de "la creación de la violencia en las ciudades de este país." Ministro del Interior de Venezuela, dijo Tracy estaba trabajando para la inteligencia de EE.UU., el pago de los grupos de derecha los jóvenes a celebrar manifestaciones violentas con el fin de desestabilizar el país después de la elección estrecha que se presume que Maduro gano la semana pasada.
