(Scroll down for video) Four students were arrested on charges of disorderly conduct after disrupting a student meeting at Ohio University, police in Ohio said.

The Ohio University Police Department said that they arrested 22-year-old Rebecca Sebo of Pepper Pike, 20-year-old Maxwell Peltz of Orange Village, 20-year-old Gabriel Sirkin of White Plains, New York, and 19-year-old Jonah Yulish of Cleveland.

All four students pleaded not guilty to their charges.

The four students were arrested on Wednesday night, at the regular meeting of the Student Senate for interrupting the meeting.

The students were angered by the actions of the Student Senate President Megan Marzec, who posted a video in support of the Palestinians.

In the video, she poured red liquid – intended to portray the blood of Palestinians – over her head. She is also lobbying that the university should boycott Israel.

The four students face 30 days in jail and a fine of $250 if convicted.
