Occupy Tampa Member Arrested For Chalking

This seems silly. Occupy Tampa member Nathan Schwartz was arrested in May for writing in chalk near the downtown Bank of America building.

Schwartz was charged with two misdemeanors-trespassing and criminal mischief. About a dozen members of Occupy Tampa stood in solidaritywith Schwartz at his hearing.

Schwartz’s lawyer requested photographic evidence of the chalking. The chalk arrow mark has most likely washed away by now. Schwartz and his attorney plan to fight this on First Amendment grounds. The City of Tampa intends to prosecute this case. Your tax dollars at work.
