Occupy Chicago's Second Attempt At Grant Park Ends In 130 Arrests (VIDEO)

For the second consecutive Saturday, the Occupy Chicago movement flexed its muscles with a 2,000-person march down Jackson Ave. and attempted occupation of Grant Park. More than 100 Chicago police officers surrounded the park warning protesters of the 11 p.m. park curfew and the risk of possible arrest.

By the end of the night at least 130 protesters were handcuffed with zip ties, photographed and escorted to the first district police station at 18th St. & State St. by a city paddy wagon and Cook County Sheriff buses by county correctional guards.
