WASHINGTON, Feb. 27 (UPI) -- An anti-abortion activist who spent 5 hours in a tree during President Obama's inauguration can visit Washington if he wishes, a court says.

But the court said Monday that Rives Grogan remains barred from an area that includes the Capitol, Supreme Court and White House, The Washington Post reported. Grogan was ordered to stay out of the District of Columbia after his arrest in January except for court hearings.

Grogan runs a ministry in Los Angeles but has been arrested many times before in Washington. After his Inauguration Day bust, prosecutors refiled charges stemming from an incident last year when he yelled anti-Planned Parenthood slogans from the public balcony in the Senate.

On Inauguration Day, Grogan yelled anti-abortion slogans from his perch in a tree.
