Protesters arrested in Tenn. after curfew defiedPolice arrest protesters in Nashville, Tenn., after demonstration resumed, new curfew defied
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) ' Police have begun arresting Wall Street protesters who defied a new curfew a day after they were forced off the Tennessee Capitol grounds because a new curfew was set.
Several dozen people remained on the grounds after the new curfew passed Friday at 10 p.m. It was not immediately known how many protesters were arrested.
About 30 demonstrators were arrested early Friday when they refused to leave. A judge later ruled the state had not given them enough time to comply with the new curfew.
More than 200 people came to a meeting Friday night to talk about the arrests and future plans.
