Officials say eight people were arrested on disturbing the peace charges during a demonstration outside a U.S. Air Force base home to Predator and Reaper remote-controlled drone aircraft.

Nevada Desert Experience coordinator Jim Haber says the Wednesday protest at Creech Air Force Base was part of an annual peace walk.

It started in Las Vegas and ends this week in Mercury, at the gate of a former federal nuclear proving ground now called the Nevada National Security Site.

Haber says the five men and three women arrested were from California, New York, Wisconsin and Nevada. None was injured.

Las Vegas police Officer Laura Meltzer says they're accused of failing to disperse when ordered.

Each was driven 45 miles to Las Vegas, given summonses with a June court date and released.
