A total of 11 protesters were arrested at the “Occupy Riverside”
movement after a clash with the police, who were trying to dismantle the
group’s camp near City Hall.
Police had begun warning protesters on Friday that the tent city had
to come down due to city ordinances that protect the public plaza.
A fight broke out Sunday after protesters formed a human chain to
prevent the officers from forcibly removing the tents, police say.
One protester threw a bottle at an officer and was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
The ten others were arrested on suspicion of assault on a police officer or resisting an officer.
There were no reported injuries although the police came prepared in full riot gear.
