Two arrested during Frack Free Future

ALBANY - Two protesters were arrested during a "Frack Free Future" rally in Albany Tuesday.

Joanne Farrell and Abram Loeb were charged with disorderly conduct after police say they laid down in front of the executive chamber door and refused to move.

The anti-fracking concert was hosted by actors Mark Ruffalo and Melissa Leo.

The controversial technology is a natural gas development, using high-volume hydraulic fracturing.

Opponents say fracking could contaminate water supplies with toxic chemicals and radiation. Supporters say it can be done safely.
