Two Arrested Outside Vice Presidential Debate
By AP News Staff
DANVLLE, KY - Two Los Angeles men are scheduled to be arraigned next week after their arrests outside the vice presidential debate in Danville.
The Lexington Herald-Leader and the Advocate-Messenger reported they were the only arrests made related to the debate, held Thursday night at Centre College.
Police say 47-year-old Rives Miller Grogan was charged with disorderly conduct after he climbed a tree and shouted anti-abortion slogans at a crowd gathered to watch the debate on a large-screen TV.
The Herald-Leader identified Grogan as the same man arrested earlier in the week for running across the field during a playoff game between the Cincinnati Reds and the San Francisco Giants.
Police also arrested and charged 27-year-old Frankie Cruz with criminal trespassing.
Both arraignments are scheduled for Tuesday in Boyle District Court.
