Associated Press (AP) — The Trump-like character assassinated in a New York production of Shakespeare's play "Julius Caesar" had a dramatic new scene this weekend: A 24-year-old woman stormed the stage, yelling, "Do you want Trump to be assassinated?"

Police say Laura Loomer was arrested Friday evening during the production presented in Central Park by the city's respected Public Theater. She was charged with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.

The conservative activist said on Twitter that she's not apologetic about interrupting the production, then going to jail.

She was released and got a desk appearance ticket for the concert.

Loomer said on Twitter that while she's not in jail, she's not apologetic.

Delta and Bank of America both pulled their sponsorship of the Public Theater, which is known for its edgy, modern productions.
