91 protesters arrested at White House, most of them in wheelchairs
The protesters are calling on the president to support legislation that would give people with disabilities in need of long-term care alternatives to nursing homes.
Sgt. David Schlosser says a large group gathered on a sidewalk outside the White House on Monday without a protest permit required for groups of more than 25 demonstrators.
He says some protesters are in wheelchairs and have chained themselves to a fence. Police may use a bolt-cutter to cut the chains.
The protesters are receiving written citations from officers, but are not being handcuffed or taken to a detention facility.
