Alabama: Abortion clinic director arrested

The director of a Tuscaloosa, Ala., abortion clinic has been arrested for disorderly conduct after allegedly threatening pro-life activists peacefully waving signs on a public sidewalk, authorities have confirmed.


A local police officer, attempting to prevent an altercation, asked the woman to stop screaming, noting that the police did not want a disturbance.

"I will do what I want," the clinic director replied. "I will not obey you."

At that point, McEwan says, the policeman arrested the woman, handcuffed her, and drove her to the police station.

Capt. Greg Kosloff, spokesman for the Tuscaloosa Police Department, confirmed that the woman was arrested, then released after posting a $500 bond, and will be summoned for a court date in the future.
