Roadblock at the Browns: Brown Supporter Lauren Canario Arrested

Federal Marshals set up a roadblock on Center of Town Road in Plainfield today and are refusing to let anyone visit the Browns. In a deliberate act of civil disobedience, Lauren Canario began walking to the Brown's home from the roadblock and was arrested. According to Jim Johnson, Lauren's husband, what happened was:

We left Keene about 12:15 and got there about 2 hours later. We got up there and there were about 20 officers at the roadblock and waved the van down to stop. There were at least 4 guys up the hill dressed in green with weapons. We pulled up and they asked us where we were going. We said we were going to the Brown and they handed us the notice and said we needed to read it. I read it slowly out loud for Lauren while she filmed. I asked if we were being detained and they said wait a minute. Lauren said let's go on up the hill – they're not detaining us. I didn't want to be arrested, so didn't want to keep driving. “I can't get arrested...I'll freak out and they'll kill me.”
