Grandmother Arrested During PG&E SmartMeter Protest

Resistance to PG&E controversial SmartMeters heated up in the North Bay Tuesday when a 61-year-old grandmother spent six hours in jail after blocking a truck carrying the devices in Rohnert Park.
Sebastapol resident Deborah Tavares told KTVU she was not an activist and had never been arrested before the Tuesday incident.

Tavares is a land developer and — after her run in with the law during a protest against PG&E’s SmartMeters — a grandmother with a misdemeanor arrest record.
The 61-year-old Tavares and a second woman from Novato were arrested by Rohnert Park police Tuesday morning as they and a group of about a dozen other protesters blocked a semi-truck delivering SmartMeters to a company that installs them for PG&E.
