Video: Six Arrested After Disruption in City Council Chambers

Seattle police arrested six people after they disrupted a City Council meeting on Feb. 27.

Officers were called to Seattle City Council Chambers at about 2:55 p.m., as people filled the room and continued to interfere with the session. Those who were part of the disruption were told to leave the chambers, but they refused and were told they would be arrested if they continued.

After being warned and refusing to stop, three men and three women were arrested for criminal trespass. One of the men was also charged with obstruction.

Many others in the chambers left without any issues.

City council members were able to resume the meeting after the arrests.

The six arrested are being booked in the King County Jail.

There were no injuries and there was no use of force by Seattle police officers.
