Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, 18 other Wall Street protesters arrested in Sacramento By The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) ' Police in the California state capital of Sacramento say that anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan was among 19 demonstrators arrested during a demonstration of anti-Wall Street sentiment.

The Sacramento Bee ( reports that the 53-year-old Sheehan was booked early Sunday on suspicion of unlawful assembly and failing to follow police orders to disburse.

Police spokeswoman Laura Peck says the 18 other demonstrators were also arrested for unlawful assembly.

She says because the charge is a misdemeanor, those arrested would likely be released and ordered to appear in court within a few days.

The Bee reports police have made 58 arrests at the park across from City Hall, where protesters have been gathering since Oct. 6.
