NEW YORK -- A woman who plowed her car into protesters Friday in New York City, injuring six of them, has been arrested and charged with reckless endangerment.

Police said 52-year-old Kathleen Casillo was released from custody after being given a notice to appear in court at a later date.

A message seeking comment was left at a number listed for Casillo. Online records did not list a lawyer who could speak on her behalf.

Another woman, whom police described as a protester, was arrested for interfering with ambulance workers at the scene.

She was charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction of governmental administration and released with a notice to appear in court at a later date.
