SOUTH BEND, Ind. – By now, you are likely aware of protests happening on college campuses nationwide.  Well, 17 protestors were arrested Thursday night at the University of Notre Dame.

Police learned of a group demonstrating around 4 p.m.  While the group had not been given permission to do so, the university apparently decided to allow it…under certain conditions.

Essentially, demonstrators were told that they could not put up any tents, that they had to stay in a certain area, that they could not have “amplified sound,” and that they had to be done by 10 p.m., or else they could be arrested.

The St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office says the school made these requests, in part, because students on campus “needed to prepare for final examinations.”

A probable cause affidavit indicates that the group did not follow most of these rules.  So, university leaders explained that anyone who continued to remain would be subject to arrest.

Around 11:15 p.m., 17 people were left.  They were arrested and charged with Criminal Trespassing.
