Good Trouble? Protesters Arrested near Alabama State Capitol

Montgomery Police made several arrest outside of the State Capitol on Tuesday.

Protesters attempted to spray paint the street in front of the Capitol steps.

The protest was sponsored by the group S.O.S. also known as Save Ourselves Movement.

Throughout the spring and summer the group has held protest for medicaid expansion on the Capitol steps.

Earlier this month, at least three members of the group were arrested for spray painting “black lives matter” and “expand  medicaid” on the same street.

Tuesdays protest was quickly cut short when MPD had to stop protesters from spray painting on the street again.

In total nine people were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

According to one protester, the charges were dropped and they were not officially charged with a crime.
