• by Chris Jewers

Kimberly Falkenstine, 33, was taking part in a nearby protest in Lummus Park

Deciding to take more direct action, she went to the closed beach and lay down 

She told police officers she understood the consequences if she refused to move

She 'dropped her dead weight' forcing arresting officers to carry her to their car

Falkenstine faces charges including trespassing and posted a $2,500 bond
