Protests have become a regular feature of UNC Board of Governors meetings, ever since the board removed former system president Tom Ross and named Margaret Spellings as his replacement. But this week for the first time, the protests led to arrests.
Four protesters, all of them students, were charged with disorderly conduct and other offenses. Charges have since been dropped against one of them, but three are scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
