Two Protesters Wearing Giant Bush-Cheney Masks Were Arrested Outside SMU Today (Updated with Video)
The men and women who gathered alongside Central Expressway this morning to protest the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Center were mostly well-behaved. They marched by peacefully by in their Jason-esque hockey masks, Guantanamo prison garb and comically oversize papier mache heads.
But then something went wrong. A Dallas policewoman tweeted a while ago that three protesters were arrested. Police have provided no other detail, but the Morning News' Scott Goldstein brings us this important piece of news:
Two guys wearing huge Bush and Cheney heads were among those arrested. #gwbsmu

The arrests came after papier mache Bush, papier mache Cheney, and another person reportedly refused to get out of the road and onto the sidewalk. Can't wait to see the mugshots.
Update at 2:56 p.m.: It seems the arrest was caught on video:
