OKLAHOMA CITY -

Protestors took on one of Oklahoma City's largest corporations.

They unfurled a banner inside the Devon tower and a couple of fracking protestors chained themselves to the front door of the Devon Tower.

Others went inside the lobby to spread their message and it caused quite a scene.

One by one, anti -fracking activists were cuffed and questioned about their demonstration inside the Devon Tower.

"They ignored me and told me to leave, and kinda told me to stand in several different places and then put me in the back of a cop car," Sarah Totten said.

Sarah Totten is one of nearly a dozen protestors affiliated with the groups, Great Plains Tar Sands Resistance and Cross Timbers Earth First.

The protestors unfurled a banner inside the building. It said "the odds are never in your favor," a line from the popular Hunger Games.

But Oklahoma City Police say the protestors took it too far when they dropped a black substance from the second floor balcony.

Two protestors also chained themselves to the front door. Firefighters were forced to cut them free.

All were detained and four were arrested.

The four arrested, including Caroline McNally, Moriah Stephenson, Stefan Warner, and Cory Mathis, are now at the Oklahoma county jail. The group is now asking for donations to bond them out.
