Occupy Fort Worth Protestors Arrested

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Several Occupy Fort Worth protesters were arrested after refusing to leave a tent that had been unlawfully erected at a park.

Police said four people were arrested Saturday. But Rick Griffin, a Fort Worth lawyer helping providing legal support for the group, tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that five protesters were arrested.

He says they were released Sunday after posting $750 bail each.

Griffin says they are expected to be charged with interfering with the duties of a public servant, a Class B misdemeanor.

A police report says officers allowed them to leave the tents up during a march with the understanding that they would bring them down after. A city ordinance prohibits tents in the park.

Anywhere from 10 to several dozen protestors have been at the park.
