Two arrested in Obama effigy incident at UK

Beth Musgrave with the Herald-Leader is reporting today that police have arrested a University of Kentucky student and one of his friends in connection with an effigy of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama that was hung from a tree on campus this week. 

The two men told police it was a prank in response to reports that an effigy of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was hung from a home in California.
