Two Los Angeles men are scheduled to be arraigned next week after their arrests outside the vice presidential debate in Kentucky, with one climbing a tree and shouting anti-abortion slogans.

Police say 47-year-old Rives Miller Grogan was charged with disorderly conduct after he climbed a tree and shouted anti-abortion slogans at a crowd gathered to watch the debate on a large-screen TV. The Lexington Herald-Leader identified Grogan as the same man arrested earlier in the week for running across the field during a playoff game between the Cincinnati Reds and the San Francisco Giants.

Police also arrested and charged 27-year-old Frankie Cruz with criminal trespassing.

These were the only arrests made related to the debate, held Thursday night at Centre College in Danville, the Herald-Leader and the Advocate-Messenger report.

Both are scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.
