DALLAS (AP) — Police have arrested at least three people during a protest march in Dallas near the dedication site of the George W. Bush Presidential Center.

The three people were placed in patrol cars Thursday as about 200 people marched and chanted near the campus of Southern Methodist University. Police Lt. A.W. Williams says the three were charged with being a pedestrian in a roadway, a misdemeanor. They were taken to the Dallas County jail.

Demonstrations were restricted to a zone cordoned off by barricades and separated from the center by a highway.

Other protesters included ex-talk show host Phil Donahue, who was executive producer of the anti-war documentary "Body of War."

Dozens of others wore signs listing the names of those who died in wars launched by the Bush administration.
