D.C. Police said four people are in custody after hanging a banner from the Arlington Memorial Bridge on Monday morning.

The four men were associated with the Free Tibet movement.  All the men were taken into custody.

Two of the men were hanging by rope from the bridge's span to put the banner in place.  Harbor
Patrol traveled out on boats to take the two men into custody.  Those men were handcuffed once they reached shore at the Georgetown waterfront.

The event had minimal impact on traffic.  The four will be charged with a civil disobedience offense.

News4's Darcy Spencer reports more protests related to the Free Tibet movement could occur through the week.
