A third-party presidential candidate and her vice-presidential running mate were taken into police custody Tuesday before the presidential debate in Hempstead, New York.

Both Green Party candidate Jill Stein and running mate Cheri Honkala have been charged with disorderly conduct, after trying to protest rules barring them from participating in the debate, according to the Wall Street Journal.

In order to participate in the debates, the candidates must average 15 percent in the five largest national polls.

Reports show that the two sat down with an American flag covering their laps, and they did not heed police’s warnings that they were blocking traffic.

The Green Party candidates polled between 2 and 3 percent.

More on this story is available from the Wall Street Journal.

Video of their arrest is included below.
