DENVER (AP) - Several people have been arrested Saturday at a rally that attracted hundreds of people to downtown Denver in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
KUSA-TV reports Denver police said the protesters were taken into custody for refusing to move out of the street. The station reports that the arrests signaled a rise in tensions following a noon rally that attracted between 1,000 and 5,000 participants.
Early in the evening traffic had been stopped on two streets for at least an hour as protesters blocked an intersection in front of the Capitol.
