Two of the protesters with the group that burned the American flag outside the Republican National Convention were arraigned today.

Dominique Knox and Joseph Scogin both face felony charges in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court for allegedly assaulting police officers, resisting arrest and obstructing official business.

Civil Rights Attorney Terry Gilbert says videos of the incident show the men are innocent of the charges. They pleaded not guilty in court.
