3 arrested during protests at Sensata


A protest at Freeport's Sensata Plant results in the arrest of a handful of protesters.

Supporters of factory workers blocked a truck they suspected was removing machinery now that the facility is closing down and moving operations to China.

According to protesters, police showed up and arrested those blocking the road. Debi Kemple, Karri Penniston, and Jerry Ontjes were taken into custody. The three were subsequently released and face a future court date.
