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.
