Denver (AP) A woman who received a trespassing ticket after a group's protest outside John McCain's town hall event in Denver yesterday plans to challenge the ticket.

Carol Kreck, a former reporter for the Denver Post, was holding a sign that read “McCain = Bush” when police removed her from the atrium of the Denver performing arts complex.

A spokeswoman for the Performing Arts Center says the venue is city-owned rental property but is not legally defined as public property. She says designated protest areas were outside the atrium.

Police spokesman John White says officers acted as they would have for any complaint on private property.

McCain campaign spokesman Tom Kise says the town hall was open to supporters and opponents.
