Asheville, NC -- Some same-sex couples in North Carolina continue to protest the state's new constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.
About 20 couples staged a sit-in at the Buncombe County Register of Deeds Friday. They applied for marriage licenses, which they are already denied under existing state law.
Police eventually arrested eight people for trespassing and refusing to leave the office. Officers gave them a citation and released them.
