32 more cited in 2nd wave of arrests in anti-Wall Street protest in Tucson
PHOENIX (AP) ' Police say more than 30 protesters have been cited in a second day of arrests during an anti-Wall Street protest in Tucson, Ariz.
Spokesman Matt Ronstadt says the arrests came late Sunday night after protesters refused to leave Armory Park when it closed at 10:30 p.m.
The police action came a day after 53 people were arrested at the park for identical offenses.
He says Sunday's arrests were peaceful with the 32 protesters surrendering themselves to officers. Each was arrested, issued a citation and released.
In Phoenix, 46 protesters were arrested Saturday night at a local park.
The Arizona protests, which have been peaceful, are part of a series of such demonstrations across the country against financial institutions.
