Police : How did Pete Tucker and Jim Epstein 'unlawfully enter' the public meeting for the D.C. Taxi Commission Meeting, and how were they acting in a 'disorderly way' that justified their arrest?

Also, at 0:25 of the video, the officer states that "I can arrest you for not obeying an order.". Is his statement true? Can an officer arrest a person for disobey ANY order? Even orders that civilians are not legally required to follow?

    I am sure that a sign was outside a public meeting that all cell phones are to be turned off NO CAMERAS.

    It seems the DOC was a result of his video of another person being arrested and his failure to cooperate with the police in the room.

    Many meetings are open to the press and the public but are not to be recorded photographed.

    As it was said, today's society lives by a cell phone and maybe the courts need to update themselves?
