NEWARK, Del. (AP) - A spokeswoman for the University of Delaware says a Green Party candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives was arrested after participating in a disturbance before a debate at the university.

University of Delaware spokeswoman Andrea Boyle Tippett says candidate Bernie August and another person, Desmond Kahn of Newark, were arrested Tuesday evening and face disorderly conduct charges. Kahn also faces a resisting arrest charge.

The two were part of a group that stood up to chant and speak at the start of the debate at the university's Mitchell Hall.

Two other candidates for U.S. House were debating, but August had not qualified to debate. The university says he did not apply.
