Police showing zero tolerance for trespassing at site of Chelsea Clinton’s wedding

clintonchelsea_optTwo Norwegian journalists have been arrested at the site of Chelsea Clinton's wedding, according to a report in the Courier Post.

New York state troopers charged Thomas Bjorn Nilsson and Kjerste Sortland with trespassing Wednesday after the two were caught on the grounds of the Astor Estate, approximately 90 miles north of New York City, where Clinton's wedding is set to take place July 31.

Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, will exchange nuptials with Marc Mezvinsky at the estate later this month, media outlets report.

The Associated Press reported that Helje Solberg, managing editor for Verdens Gang in Oslo, called the troopers reaction to the journalists presence at the estate an "overreaction." She allegedly stated that Nilsson and Sortland were not on the property, but at the gate of the estate trying to take photographs. However, New York State Police Major Michael A. Kopy says the two were, in fact, on the property.
