NEW YORK –
Green Party candidate Jill Stein was arrested trying to rush the stage and crash the presidential debate Monday night, being tackled by Secret Service agents who caught her before she managed to make it in front of the cameras.
“Jill Stein threw a major tantrum, yelling and screaming and complaining that she wasn’t allowed to be on the stage along with Hillary and Donald,” said Police Chief Richard Moore. “This all happened outside before the event. About midway through, though, she was caught sneaking onto the stage and tried to rush the candidates, hollering about there being a third-party option.”
This was not the first time that Jill Stein was arrested. A similar incident happened four years ago where Stein was arrested for disorderly conduct during the debates. She is being charged with public nuisance, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.
