A protester was arrested on Friday after she interrupted the controversial 'Julius Caesar' play in Central Park.

The Trump-like character assassinated in a New York production of Shakespeare's play "Julius Caesar" had a dramatic new scene this weekend: A 24-year-old woman stormed the stage, yelling, "Do you want Trump to be assassinated?"

Police say Laura Loomer was arrested Friday evening during the production presented in Central Park by the city's respected Public Theater. She was charged with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.
