RENO, Nev. (AP) - Criminal charges have been dropped in Nevada against three topless protesters who were arrested at a rally for Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders in Carson City in February.
The three animal-protection activists from California were arrested Feb. 16 for gross misdemeanor indecent exposure after they took the stage while the Vermont senator was speaking and denounced the dairy industry, according to KOLO-TV.
Rachel Ziegler, 27, and Carla Cabral, 48, both of Oakland, Calif., and Audrey Rees, 19, of San Diego were booked into the jail on $2,500 bail, but later released. They are affiliated with the San Francisco-based activist group, Direct Action Everywhere, which issued a news release this week publicizing the dropping of the charges.
