Monday Night Football was the site of surprise protest when a pair of fans rappelled from the upper deck and unfurled a banner asking the Bank of America Stadium’s sponsor to stop supporting a local energy company.
The banner read “BoA: Dump Dominion” and a press release at DumpDominion.com calls on Bank of America to cease its financial dealings with Dominion Resources in an effort to stop Dominion from building a liquefied natural gas facility in Cove Point, Md.
The stunt began in the second half and cameras showed the protesters still hanging from their gear in front of the press box in the fourth quarter. Security emptied the area below the pair of spectators, according to SBNation.com.
The duo was eventually lowered to the ground where they were arrested by police and removed from the stadium.
