12 arrested in Occupy protest in Minneapolis


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A KSTP-TV photojournalist was sore Sunday after a police officer knocked the camera off his shoulder without warning while he was filming the arrests of Occupy Minnesota protesters.

Twelve demonstrators were arrested about 11 p.m. Saturday for blocking traffic and being a public nuisance.

KSTP-TV news director Lindsay Radford says cameraman Chad Nelson was filming the arrests when an officer knocked his camera to the ground.
