Los Angeles Authorities Make Arrests at Occupy LA Protest

| No Comments

Four people were arrested in Los Angeles Monday during a confrontation with hundreds of Occupy Wall Street protesters.

The four protesters who were arrested were charged with failure to disperse.

The protesters were blocking downtown streets around City Hall. Their encampments on City Hall grounds were set to be cleared by police on Monday, but police withdrew without breaking up the camps, the New York Times reported.

Violence was avoided even though protesters taunted officers and threw water bottles as well, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The police did not comment on when they will move in on the encampment of hundreds of people, but a spokesman of the police said the goal of the Monday breakup was to allow traffic through the blocked streets.
