ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - Two men arrested for protesting against President Barack Obama on an Interstate 70 overpass near St. Louis say they were breaking no laws.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 41-year-old Marc Messmer of St. Charles and 57-year-old Duane Weed of Bridgeton were arrested Saturday afternoon on a St. Charles overpass. It was part of a series of overpass demonstrations around the country calling for impeachment of the president.
Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Al Nothum says the men and 10 other protesters were creating a traffic hazard and were told to leave. Nothum says Messmer and Weed were arrested for failing to obey.
Nothum says that earlier Saturday there were five accidents near the location of the protest. None involved serious injury.
