3 Arrests as Police Clear Occupy LA Protesters

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Police have arrested three people after ordering Occupy Los Angeles protesters to leave a downtown intersection. The arrests came after hundreds of people gathered in the street after a deadline passed to vacate a City Hall park encampment. Water bottles were thrown at officers as officers in riot gear started clearing 1st and Main streets just after 5 a.m. Monday. The police department has been on tactical alert, meaning the late night watch was held over, since midnight. At 4:50 a.m., police on loudspeakers declared an unlawful assembly and protesters were told to get out of the street within five minutes. Commanders corralled demonstrations beck to the City Hall park, telling them they won’t be arrested there. Many tents were dismantled as the deadline loomed.
