WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. Capitol Police say four people were arrested outside of New York Sen. Chuck Schumer's office on Capitol Hill.

Police said on Monday that three women and one man were arrested at about 2:42 p.m. in the Hart Office Building. Officer Shennell Antrobus "ShaNELL ANtrabus), a spokesman for Capitol Police, said the four were charged with impeding or hindering.

An email to reporters with the name of activist David Swanson said the protesters were demanding that Schumer oppose U.S. policy on the use of drones.
