2 people arrested for criminal trespass after US Open protest; police boost presence at tournament

Two men have been charged with criminal trespass after their protest at the U.S. Open Thursday night.

Gregory Schwedock, 35, of New York City, and 50-year-old Shayok Mukhopadhyay, of White Plains, New York, were arrested for the protest. Mukhopadhyay was also charged with disorderly conduct.

Mukhopadhyay glued his feet to the ground at Arthur Ashe Stadium, contributing to a 49-minute match delay.

Gauff won the match to advance to her first U.S. Open final, which will be played Saturday.
