San Jose “freedom fighter” Ly Tong, 63, stands with his supporters while being videotaped outside the Hall of Justice on Thursday giving an update of what transpired in his court case. The video will be distributed to Vietnamese-language ethnic media around the globe. He is charged with dressing up in drag and pepper-spraying a singer from Vietnam at the Santa Clara Convention Center two years ago to protest the repressive policies of the communist government. The singer was able to resume the concert within about 45 minutes. Tong is charged with five felonies, including assault, as well as misdemeanor resisting arrest, and faces a maximum of five years behind bars if he is convicted. (Dai Sugano/Staff)
