2 weekend Occupy arrests in Minneapolis

| No Comments

Two people were arrested Saturday during the weekend Occupy Minneapolis protest against Wall Street and they remain in custody, the Star Tribune reported.

At a foreclosed home being occupied by protesters, one man was arrested on charges of obstruction of justice for refusing to move for police and the other was arrested on charges of burglary and trespassing, the Star Tribune reported.

According to the Pioneer Press, a video posted on the Occupy Minnesota website shows an officer slowly driving his squad car forward to push the man out of his way.

"I think a police officer using his vehicle on any civilian-unarmed and peaceful-is just wrong," said protester Osha Karow, the Star Tribune reported.

The Pioneer Press reports that on Sunday, about two dozen protesters returned to the foreclosed home as fire officials were boarding it up. Protesters were peaceful and there were no arrests.
