Three more Occupy Tampa protesters were arrested at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park during the middle of the night, charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and interfering with an investigation..
According to police, two protesters pushed an officer who was checking on a report that demonstrators had set up and were sleeping inside tents in the park.
But according to openletternews.org, an officer shoved a legal observer holding a camera to the concrete before arresting him. Police then arrested a protester who accidentally bumped into an officer and another for verbally questioning the grounds for arrest.
The website says the arrested protesters have been been identified as Keith Cuesta, who bumped into an officer, Stephen Gentile, who voiced his discontent with the arrests, and Karel Soucre, the legal observer.
