Gary Kasparov Arrested

Gary Kasparov was arrested on charges of Organizing an Unauthorized Protest and Resisting Arrest, after a protest by the Other Russia Coalition broke through police lines and began marching on the Election Commission. Gary Kasparov, of course, is the former Chess Grand Champion, now known for being strongly critical of the current Russian government. He was reportedly forced to the ground and beaten, says his assistant.
Let's be honest, I'm just trying to paraphrase from the news article. You can read it here.
Here is a video of Mr. Kasparov on Bill Maher earlier this year-- I can't figure out how to embed it because I am having a Brain problem today, so, here it is.

As far as I can tell, Gary Kasparov is a pretty fantastic guy.

At the age of 6, Kasparov solved an endgame Chess problem in the newspaper without knowing the rules of chess. You think you're smart? You think you even know what smart is? That is what smart is.
