Three climate change protesters have been arrested by police after video showed them climbing the globe structure in New York City’s Columbus Circle.

The New York Police Department told Fox News the trio climbed into the globe around 3:15 p.m. Monday, unfurled a banner that read “Climate Justice Now,” and poured red paint on top of the statue.

Each was charged with criminal mischief, criminal tampering and criminal trespassing.
