2 arrested outside vice presidential debate

DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - 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 (http://bit.ly/SWGnrC ) and the Advocate-Messenger (http://bit.ly/Q79ylg ) report 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.
