Chalking, assault lead to arrests of Occupy Tucson demonstrators

TUCSON (KOLD) - Tucson Police arrested two people Monday night and early Tuesday in connection with the Occupy Tucson demonstrations taking place at Veinte de Agosto Park downtown.

Late Monday a sergeant observed a male subject writing Occupy Tucson-related slogans with colored chalk on a wall at the TPD Headquarters downtown.  Police arrested and jailed 28-year-old Jonathan L. McLane on a graffiti charge.

About an hour later, officers arrested a woman staying in a tent after questioning her about another person in an unrelated incident.  Police say the unidentified woman struck a sergeant in the hand, knocking his flashlight to the ground.

Officers also got a call about a fight at the park, but they did not any combatants, and they say potential witnesses did not cooperate with police.

    Thanksgiving dinner plans take a detour when it comes to a good deal. Shoppers were out, with their wallets out, at the Tucson Premium Outlets in Marana Thursday night, Nov. 23. But any signs of chaotic holiday shopping were muted, just as the shoppers had hoped.
