Police arrested the two men in a hotel room a few miles from the G20 protests. They say the two were sitting in front of computers and maps, wearing headphones and microphones and had police scanners in the room.

The attorney for one of the men says the scanners were not being used and that police violated their first amendment right to free speech.

The Pennsylvania's attorney's office is not commenting on the case.
