RAW VIDEO: Occupy Tucson movement turns violent
WARNING: THE VIDEO ABOVE CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES AND OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.


TUCSON - The Occupy Tucson movement turned violent this morning as
one apparent member shoved several other occupiers, and another grabbed
the camera of a News 4 Tucson photojournalist, and at one point, tried
to tackle him.
Some Occupiers are saying there is a split in the movement - who is
leading it and how they should go forward are point of contention within
the group.
News 4 Tucson's Andrew Melendez attempted to capture a moment of
conflict this morning, and became the target of one of the occupiers.
Melendez says the protesters grabbed his camera, and attempted to
tackle him at one point. Another apparent protester, identified as
"Ivan," shoves and chases several other members, including community
activist Mary DeCamp, who has been heavily involved in the Occupy Tucson
movement.
Tucson Police arrived this morning and forcibly evicted and arrested
several Occupy Tucson members who refused to vacate De Anza Park,
located north of Downtown Tucson.
Tune in to News 4 Tucson this afternoon for a full report.
