Friday night’s production of the controversial Julius Caeser that depicts President Trump‘s assassination was halted when a pro-Trump protester walked onstage and began shouting down the actors.

Laura Loomer, who documented the entire ordeal via Periscope, stormed the stage and shouted “Stop the normalization of political violence!” and accused the actors of “promoting violence against the right.”

She was quickly escorted off the stage by security and was arrested by the police. She was charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct, but was let go not long after.

When all of this went down, #FreeLaura began trending on Twitter among Trump supporters.

After being released from jail, Loomer took to Twitter with a crowdsourcing link to raise money for her defense fund.
