WATCH: Liberal Agitator Arrested at Cantor Event
A Louisa County man was arrested at a rally for Rep. Eric Cantor, R-7th, at Louisa Courthouse yesterday and charged with trespassing, resisting arrest and creating a public disturbance.
Jon Taylor, a Democrat, said today that he feels he was "manhandled" by Louisa authorities.
A cell-phone video shot by his son showed Taylor being escorted out of the Solid Grounds Coffee House on Louisa's Main Street, then being pushed up against a car and wrestled to the ground after he appeared to be resisting officials.
The car, parked at a meter directly in front of the restaurant, was Taylor's. His wife sat inside with a poster for Democrat Rick Waugh, who is challenging Cantor, calling Cantor a chicken.
Taylor said Cantor had promoted the event on his website, so he assumed it was a public event. "We RSVP'd," he said.
