ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Orlando Police have arrested 19 Occupy Wall Street protesters for trespassing in a city park after hours.
The group is protesting corporate influence and police say they have been compliant with city rules. But police said a small group ignored a city ordinance banning them from the park after hours. They were arrested early Saturday morning.
In a statement, city officials said they "respects this groups decision to exercise their freedom of speech but we request that they adhere to the ordinances that are in place."
