Whenever any portion of the national guard is or has been called out for the performance of any duty under the provisions of this article, it shall be lawful for the commanding officer of such national guard, if it be deemed advisable in the circumstances of the emergency, to prohibit all persons from occupying or passing on any street, road, or place, or where the national guard may be for the time being, and otherwise to regulate the passage and occupancy of such streets and places. Any person, after being duly informed of such regulations, who willfully and intentionally without any lawful excuse, attempts to go or remain on such street, road, or place, and fails to depart after being warned to do so, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and, on conviction thereof, shall be fined not less than ten dollars nor more than one hundred dollars, or imprisoned in the county jail not less than ten nor more than sixty days, or both; and in such case the officer in command of the national guard may forthwith arrest persons so offending and turn them over to some civil authority.
