The four activists involved directly in the banner drop were taken into police custody this morning with likely charges of trespassing and reckless endangerment (the exact charges are unconfirmed). They are Terra Lawson-Remer, 26, of New York; Cesar Maxit, 28, of Dallas; Rebecca Johnston, 25, of Oakland; and David Brandon Murphy, 31, of New York. Also arrested somewhat later was the group’s spokesman and media coordinator, Evan Thies.
