Army Lt. Dan Choi will appear Monday in DC Superior Court over White House arrest.

Choi, one of the most visible opponents of “don't ask, don't tell,” and Capt. James E. Pietrangelo were arrested by Park Police last month after the men handcuffed themselves to the White House fence in protest of the policy which bans gay and lesbian service members from revealing their sexual orientation at the risk of being fired.

The men spent the night in jail and were arraigned the following day. Both pleaded not guilty to a charge of failure to obey an officer.

Choi, 29, was discharged from the Army under the policy last year after he announced he was gay on MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show. He is currently appealing the Army's decision.

Pietrangelo, 44, of Sandusky, Ohio, was discharged in 2004.

The protest was sponsored by the nascent gay rights group GetEQUAL led by lesbian activist Robin McGehee. The group is also behind last week's “don't ask” action that interrupted President Obama as he spoke at a fundraiser in California for fellow Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer and a House committee disruption urging movement on ENDA, an employment gay protections bill stuck in the committee.

Last Tuesday, Choi, Pietrangelo and four more gay veterans were arrested outside the White House. The six activists handcuffed themselves to the gate in protest of “don't ask” and were arrested by Park Police.
