Actor-comedian Bill Cosby is facing sexual assault allegations in a retrial that began Monday. A former Cosby Show actress began protesting outside of the Pennsylvania courthouse where the trial is taking place, becoming so rowdy she was charged with disorderly conduct.

People reports: Nicolle Rochelle, 39, was arrested and charged “with Disorderly Conduct after she entered a restricted area on the grounds of the Montgomery County Courthouse at 8:35 a.m., when the defendant, William H. Cosby Jr., was arriving for court,” the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office said in a press release on Monday.

Rochelle, who had the words “Women’s Lives Matter” as well as the names of some of the 80-year-old actor’s accusers written on her topless body, was arrested after jumping over a barricade and trying to make her way toward Cosby, according to Page Six. The outlet also reported that since her arrest, Rochelle had been released.

The report continues: Rochelle was “charged with summary Disorderly Conduct, Title 18, Section 5503(A4), which is defined as ‘the intent to cause a public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm or recklessly creating a risk thereof,’ ” according to the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office.
