3 women arrested after attempting to hang banner from Manhattan Bridge

NEW YORK (WABC) -- Three women were arrested after allegedly attempting to drape a large banner off the Manhattan Bridge.

The large banner wrapped in rope was spotted on the bridge bike path along inbound lanes, near the Brooklyn side, just after 6:30 a.m.

Officers stopped them before they could fully unfurl the banner.

Three women, ages 26, 33 and 37, were taken into custody on the bike path.

The other members of the group ran off.

Only one word on the banner was exposed, "VOTE." The rest of the banner remained furled.

Charges are pending.
