Eighteen Anti-War Grannies Arrested For Disorderly Conduct

October 18, 2005

Eighteen anti-war protesters -- all grandmothers ranging in age from 49 to 90 -- are facing disorderly conduct charges after protesting the war in Iraq at an Army recruiting office in Times Square Monday.

The grandmothers went to the recruiting office saying they wanted to enlist. They were jailed after they staged a sit-in to protest the war.

The group's leader tried to enter the office, but the door was locked.
