BROOKLYN - Dozens of protesters are due in court today for shutting down the Brooklyn Bridge during a demonstration last month.

The arrests were made on Oct. 1 when some people stormed the bridge's roadway after being warned not to leave the pedestrian walkway.

Most are facing charges for disorderly conduct. Defense lawyers have argued that the protesters didn't hear the warnings and that police led the group into the road.
