FORT LAUDERDALE (CBS4) – Former Air America radio talk show host Nicole Sandler was arrested Tuesday night after a raucous South Florida GOP town hall meeting.
The meeting, held that the Calvary Chapel on West Crypress Creek Road, got off to a rocky start when a handful of protestors heckled speaker U.S. Rep. Allen West over Medicare and his requirement that questions had to submitted in writing. Police escorted them out of the room.
When West tried to explain the Republican position on Medicare, Sandler peppered him with questions and comments. When she refused to stop talking, she was led out of the room.
On her way out Sandler reportedly began arguing with the officer and was arrested. She was charged with trespassing after a warning.
