Seven Students Against Peabody protesters have been released after being arrested at the group’s final planned protest Friday morning. The students were arrested and charged with trespassing and disturbing the peace after attempting to cross a police line blocking entrance to the Knight Center.
At 10 p.m. Thursday night, the Students Against Peabody group officially ended its sit-in. But students involved say their stand against Peabody Energy will continue at the board of trustees meeting on May 1.
