Park police are looking into whether they were too aggressive in arresting five demonstrators dancing at the Jefferson Memorial.

The protesters were challenging a recent federal appeals court decision that upheld a ban on dancing inside the memorial.

They were arrested for dancing demonstrating without a permit.
