At least nine Occupy Tulsa protestors were arrested early Wednesday morning after violating the city's curfew for parks, according to local media reports.
According to Occupy Tulsa's Facebook page, those who were arrested were released later Wednesday morning after posting bail. They also wrote that one person was not released until 4:30 p.m.
The radio station KRMG noted that city parks are closed from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. A local ABC news affiliate reported that protestors were warned to take up their tents and stay on the sidewalk of Centennial Green park, where they had set up camp.
Curfew has come, Deputy Chief Daryl Webster said, KTUL-TV reported. But some protestors stayed on the grass and police later used pepper spray before arresting them, the TV station reported.
Occupy Tulsa supporters took to Twitter. Some disagreed with the use of pepper spray and accused the police of brutality.
Sad... Hang in there Occupy Tulsa, one supporter tweeted.
Like other Occupy movements around the country, Occupy Tulsa protestors will have to brave the cold weather. They noted some needed items on their Web site, including coats and gloves.
On a shorter list of wants, protestors requested teachers, including yoga instructors.
