Cosby courthouse chaos: Topless woman arrested as retrial starts (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)
A topless woman protesting outside the Pennsylvania courthouse where US comedian and actor Bill Cosby is due to be retried on sexual assault charges has been arrested.

The woman struggled with police officers on the pavement outside Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown just as Cosby and his lawyer approached the building. Footage taken by onlookers show that at one point in the scuffle with cops, the protester fell into nearby bushes and at least one officer was knocked to the ground.

Police handcuffed the woman before leading her away.

In June, a judge declared a mistrial after jurors reported being hopelessly deadlocked after days of deliberations on charges that Cosby drugged and assaulted Andrea Constand, 44. The retrial jury was selected last week and Cosby's defense team is expected to begin their opening statements today. 

The trial is expected to last one month.
