Two members of We Are Change were arrested in New York last night for asking Laura and Jenna Bush a question. Reporter Matt Lepacek was dragged out during Laura Bush's speech and physically assaulted by police, according to Luke Rudkowski.

News of the incidents has not been reported by the corporate media as of this morning.

A We Are Change member named Gary reportedly refused to move from a sidewalk when asked by the Secret Service. When Gary attempted to ask Laura and Jenna Bush a question, a plain clothed man escorting someone in a wheelchair started a fight. Both men were taken to a local police precinct and the man who started the fight was released, while Gary was held and later charged with 3rd Degree Assault.

According to Rudkowski, "This unknown individual was much taller and larger than Gary. For no reason this individual started to lunge at Gary and punch him and beat him. Gary did not defend himself or fight back. Gary was the victim and did not strike once at the unknown individual. This provocateur provoked an attack by trying to instigate a fight and now Gary was arrested and is now facing third degree assault charges by this unknown provocateur. Gary will be arraigned tomorrow morning."

"Please call the 19th Precinct and ask them why Gary was unlawfully arrested and charged with a third degree assault charge when he is innocent and obviously the victim," asks Rudkowski.

Inside the event, We Are Change reporter Matt Lepacek attempted to interrupt a Laura Bush speech with a question before he was quickly dragged away by police.

Luke Rudkowski reports that the police intentionally bashed Lepacek’s head against a door or wall as they removed him from the scene. Lepacek recorded the incident on his cell phone but this was quickly confiscated by police.

Lepacek was subsequently released with a summons for disorderly conduct and will go to court in the future.

Matt Lepacek previously made headlines when he was arrested for asking a question of one of Rudy Giuliani's staff members during a press conference last June.

"Phone calls from this office to Precinct 19 in attempt to obtain accurate information about the charges resulted in rude behavior and several hang-ups, as well as a transfer to the NYPD’s Dept. of Public Information (a dead end)," writes Rudkowski.

We Are Change are urging supporters to call the police precinct and politely ask that all charges be dropped against Matt Lepacek and Gary.
