Rev. Al Sharpton's Ex-Wife, Daughter Arrested in New York

The Rev. Al Sharpton's ex-wife and their daughter have been arrested during a dispute over a traffic stop.

Lawyer Michael Hardy says Sharpton's former wife, Kathy Jordan, and Dominique Sharpton were arrested Friday evening in Manhattan.

Hardy says the women were arrested when a dispute erupted after police pulled over the car Dominique was driving for allegedly running a red light.

The women were taken to a nearby precinct and later released. They were given tickets for resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and obstruction of governmental administration.

Hardy called the arrests "highly questionable and unusual."

Police would not comment on the incident except to say that the women were issued tickets to appear in court for an arraignment.
