CHARLOTTE -- Protestors with the Rainforest Action Network were taken into custody Wednesday morning. They climbed the side of Bank of America Stadium and unfurled a 70 foot banner calling the bank the "Bank of Coal."

They say they're trying to draw attention to the bank's role as a leading financer of the coal industry. The group is planning a week of events leading up to Bank of America's shareholders meeting on May 9.
