Occupy Tampa Arrests
Tampa, Fla. (AP) The brewing tension between Tampa police and Occupy Wall Street protesters led to at least six arrests early Friday after protesters refused to move off the sidewalk in front of Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park.
Police say the protesters were violating city codes. Later, a small group of protesters marched toward police headquarters in downtown Tampa, chanting “arrest corrupt police.”
Police spokeswoman Andrea Davis said police are trying to be reasonable, arresting only those who are obstructing the sidewalk.
