Police Arrest Protester at Occupy Minnesota

Protester Melissa Hill was arrested at aOccupy Minnesota rally. Hill was charged with trespassing. The only news article I can find right now is from Fox News. Take it with a grain of salt.

According to the local Fox News story, protesters were warned not to set up tents in front of the Hennepin County Government Center. The article does not make clear if Hill was arrested for setting up a tent. The deputy in the video told Hill that she was warned not to set foot on the property. Hill told the deputy that she was on the sidewalk. It appears that Hill is being charged with trespassing.

It should be noted that Hill did not resist arrest.
