Five People Arrested in D.C. for Dancing At U.S. Monument

No dancing dc

A dance-in at the Jefferson Memorial led to five arrests and a violent clash with U.S. Park Police.

A group of people in Washington, D.C., protesting a recent court decision that says expressive dancing is the same as picketing and marching, were arrested for just that -- dancing, MyFoxDC reports.

A dance-in at the Jefferson Memorial led to five arrests and a violent clash with U.S. Park Police. The incident was posted on YouTube and appears to show officers using force to push the arrestees to the ground. 

MyFoxDC reports that a spokesman for Park Police says the agency is investigating complaints officers overreacted.

Despite the court ban on dancing in certain areas of national monuments, the protestors say they plan to be back next Saturday at noon.
