Vikings stadium protesters charged

The two numbskulls who hung a banner at U.S. Bank Stadium during the last Vikings game of the season have been charged a number of crimes.

Tim Harlow of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Karl S. Zimmerman, 32, son of former Green Party Minneapolis City Council Member Dean Zimmerman, and Sen Holiday, 26, were each charged with burglary, disorderly conduct and trespassing for the high-flying stunt they carried out during the Vikings regular season finale against the Chicago Bears.

According to the charges, Zimmerman and Holiday scrambled over a wall on a public concourse to reach a ladder on one of the two main steel trusses supporting the stadium roof. From there they climbed the ladder to the catwalk and used climbing equipment to rappel as they dropped a giant banner protesting the Dakota Access oil pipeline and U.S. Bank’s financial involvement.
