Philly calm but 4 arrested in LA after deadlinePhiladelphia calm but 4 arrested in Los Angeles as Occupy protest camp deadline passes
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Los Angeles police have reopened a downtown street where hundreds of Wall Street protesters held an early morning protest that ended with bamboo and bottles being thrown at police.
Cmdr. Andy Smith says four people were arrested for failure to disperse, and police have withdrawn. Cars were moving as the morning commuter rush began.
No injuries were reported.
Protesters have been camping out near City Hall for nearly two months and the mayor had given a midnight deadline for them to leave. But protesters began flooding into the streets before the deadline and some are declaring a small victory, saying they'll remain for now.
Smith says police reopened First Street and won't raid the camp anytime soon.
