(Newser) – Two Norwegian journalists have been busted for taking photos of the upstate New York site where Chelsea Clinton is expected to get married next week. The pair, picked up near the Astor estate in Rhinebeck, have been charged with trespassing, though their editor says they weren't actually on the property and the arrests are an overreaction. "We did not realize it was forbidden to take the picture of the gate of the house where the Clinton wedding is to be," she said. The paper plans to pay their $250 fine, AP reports.
