“It is unacceptable for activist organizations to instruct their members to jeopardize themselves by engaging in unlawful activities such as gaining entry to closed university buildings, disrupting learning environments, and filming students in a restroom,” Sinema said in a statement the day after the incident.
“I don’t want to overstep on the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office and release names, because it’s still being processed and if they choose to prosecute I don’t want to interfere with that,” spokesman for the ASU Police Department Adam Wolfe said, reported the outlet.
All four protesters allegedly committed disorderly conduct and disruption of an educational institution according to Wolfe, reported the AZ Mirror. Both charges are misdemeanors in Arizona.
“The Arizona State University Police Department submitted recommended charges and the findings of the investigation to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office on Oct. 12,” the Arizona State University Police Department said in a statement to the Daily Caller.
Another group of protesters followed Sinema Oct. 4 through Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., criticizing her opposition to the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.
