CRAWFORD, Texas (CNN) -- Anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan was arrested Thursday afternoon outside President Bush's ranch, according to Tela Mange with the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Mange said that Sheehan, whose son Casey died in Iraq, and four others were arrested for blocking the road leading to the ranch. Mange said officers asked Sheehan and the others repeatedly to get out of the roadway, and they refused.

"She told us if you want us to get out of the road, you're going to have to arrest us," Mange said. "So we did." (Posted 6:22 p.m.)

From the Waco Tribune

Sheehan, arrested just after 11, said she and others were conducting a “peace surge” to address concerns that Bush may increase U.S. troop numbers in Iraq. The Bush administration is under mounting pressure to change its tactics in an increasingly unpopular conflict. Among the suggestions Bush is considering is a temporary surge in U.S. troops.

Just before she was arrested, Sheehan was sitting in the middle of the road near Bush’s 1,600-acre ranch. This morning’s protesters said they fully expected to be arrested for demonstrating near the ranch.

Protesters have been arrested before for violating a county ordinance that forbids camping out along the side of the road or blocking traffic, which Sheehan and some of her followers appeared to be doing this morning. One protester was lying in the middle of the road, apparently to symbolize the dead of the Iraq war.
