Stadium manager says protesters had tickets to Vikings game


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A man and a woman who hung from the rafters during a Vikings game and unfurled a banner in protest of the Dakota Access oil pipeline entered U.S. Bank Stadium with tickets, and stadium officials said Tuesday that protesters hid their climbing equipment under winter clothing.

Three people were arrested Sunday after two protesters rappelled from the roof of the Minnesota Vikings' stadium during their season finale against the Chicago Bears. The game was not interrupted, but eight rows of fans seated below the protesters were evacuated.

The two climbers — who identified themselves as Sen Holiday, 26, of St. Paul, and Karl Zimmermann Mayo, 32, of Minneapolis — met with reporters Tuesday but refused to answer questions about how they entered the building. Authorities haven't said how the third person was involved. None of the people have been formally charged and police are still investigating.
