The morning started with the arrests of two demonstrators after they disrupted an energy panel that was being held outside a performing arts center. Forty-three year old Paul G. Davis and 42 year-old Dylan W. Wrynn were both charged with disorderly conduct. Davis was also charged with dispersal of a noxious substance.
As the day continued, 60 year-old John Penley was arrested for attempting to climb over a police barricade. Penley, an Asheville native and Vietnam veteran, was charged with breaching a police line. He had a part in organizing the protest march that was taking place at the time.
Just after 5:00 Tuesday afternoon, police arrested 10 undocumented immigrants that were blocking the intersection of Fifth and College streets by sitting down in the road. Because the intersection is only a block away from the Time Warner Cable Arena, at least one delegate bus went a different route than was planned to the convention.

Jane Doe, Kitzia Esteva, Gloria Martinez Estevez, Jane Doe, Rosa Carrasco, Martin Uncuenta, Eleazar Castellanos, Yovany Diaz, Julio Sanchez, and Gerardo Torres were all arrested and charged with impeding traffic. They are all involved in a group that is actively protesting the deportation of undocumented immigrants. Those arrested also face the possibility of deportation because of a federal program screening all suspects for their status after their arrest.
