Anti-abortion activist Randall Terry has been arrested while protesting against President Barack Obama's upcoming commencement speech at the University of Notre Dame just hours after he was ordered off school grounds.

University spokesman Dennis Brown says campus police arrested Terry on Friday on a trespassing charge. Terry was released from the St. Joseph County Jail on $250 bond.

The Operation Rescue founder is in South Bend protesting the school's invitation to Obama to speak at the May 17 commencement. The protest Friday involved demonstrators pushing carriages with dolls covered in fake blood.

Brown says the school issued a no-trespassing order after a protest Thursday and that the order is in effect until it's rescinded by Notre Dame.
