Occupy Tulsa Protestors Arrested At Tulsa Park

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa police have arrested Occupy Tulsa protestors for curfew violations.

Mark Faulk - who describes himself as a moderator for Occupy Oklahoma City - said the protestors were arrested at a city park - but said he didn't know how many were arrested.

Another Occupy Oklahoma City moderator - Beth Isbell - said in a news release that police used pepper spray while arresting protestors sitting on the ground in the park about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. She did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Police also did not immediately return phone calls for comment. Deputy Chief Daryl Webster told KTUL that pepper spray was used on those who resisted arrest.

The park has an 11 p.m. curfew and city officials decided Tuesday to begin enforcing it.
