Yonkers firefighter arrested for anti-war artwork

An off-duty Yonkers firefighter says he was arrested in New York City for hanging a poster on the side of a building.

Jeff Campion, who volunteers with sick children, says he used wallpaper paste to hang a poster of a child and a bloody hand grenade.

Campion says the image is pro-child and anti-war. He says he's trying to use his artwork to spread a message.

He will face a disciplinary hearing and has not been suspended from the fire department.
