Activists released after altercation at Marlins stadium debate

(Miami Herald) – Activists Tony Romano and Yvonne Stratford were released from jail early Tuesday after an altercation during Monday’s heated 9 ½-hour debate over the Florida Marlins’ long-sought stadium plan at County Hall.

Their organization, the Miami Worker’s Center, has argued against the initiative, saying the money could be better spent in other ways.

After being escorted from the County Commission chamber for going over the two-minute speech limit, police said Stratford grew abusive and threw a piece of paper at an officer. She was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence.

Romano, who said he came to her aid, was charged with two counts of trespass and two counts of resisting arrest without violence.
