Nashville Occupy Protesters Arrested Sunday

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - For two days in a row, Occupy protesters were arrested.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol made the arrests Sunday morning after 14 protesters forced their way into an abandoned Motor Vehicle Management building on Charlotte Pike.

Occupy members were lending their support to an independent group who is transforming the building into a homeless resource station.

The protesters were cited with trespassing. Since one of them was a juvenile, officers took him to a detention facility for violating curfew.
