Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Second Front -

PITTSBORO, N.C. — Po­lice in North Carolina say they’ve ar­rested two peo­ple after a “phys­i­cal al­ter­ca­tion” at a protest over a Con­fed­er­ate statue slated to be re­moved.

The Chatham County Sher­iff’s Of­fice said Satur­day it ar­rested Calvin James Meg­gin­son and Ti­mothy James Os­born on charges re­lated to the al­ter­ca­tion. Both were re­leased and are due in court next month.

A pro-Con­fed­er­ate group is try­ing to stop re­moval of the statue, which has been sta­tioned out­side the county court­house in Pittsboro since 1907.
