Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Five activists were arrested on Capitol Hill around noon today near the offices of the People's Law Project at 1280 Sherman Street. According to PLP attorney Brian Vicente, the group was walking down 12th Avenue when they were stopped by police and arrested for "failure to obey a lawful order."

A van belonging to the activists parked nearby was examined by police as well. The names of those arrested are not yet known. They were booked at the Denver City & County Building and are scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow morning. --Jared Jacang Maher
