Oklahoma Highway Patrol: 5 arrested after protest

OKLAHOMA CITY — An Oklahoma Highway Patrol official says four men and a woman have been arrested at the Oklahoma state Capitol after a protest turned raucous and participants knocked over barricades.

Maj. Rusty Rhoades says the five were arrested early Tuesday afternoon on complaints of destruction of state property, obstruction and violating their protest permit. Their names were not immediately released. Rhoades said they were being transported to the Oklahoma County Jail.

Rhoades says a group of about 35 protesters showed up at the Capitol Tuesday morning as part of the Million Mask March, a national movement involving computer hackers and whistleblowers protesting political corruption. He says one protester was cited for refusing to take off his mask as he walked through Capitol security.

The OHP oversees security at the Capitol.
