THE BACK STORY
In 2008, Brooke Oberwetter was celebrating the birthday of Thomas Jefferson by dancing, using headphones and an MP3 player, at the Memorial. Considered a form of protest by the government, she was summarily arrested and released from prison. (http://www.theagitator.com/2008/04/21/jefferson-memorial-update/)
