Bicycling Activists Detained For Impersonating Police During “Film the Police” Ride
(GOTHAMIST) Two Time’s Up! activists wearing cartoonish police costumes were arrested on the Lower East Side during a “Film the Police” group bike ride Friday night as they headed downtown to gather in solidarity with jailed Occupy Wall Street protesters. As you can see in the videos below, Barbara Ross and Keegan Stephan were told they were being arrested for impersonating police officers. But after spending a few hours locked up at the local precinct, officers apparently came to their senses.
