Arrests Made As OWS Protesters, Police Clash In Union Square

•, By: NY1 News
 A tense night led to a chaotic morning in Union Square Park, where several Occupy Wall Street protesters were placed under arrest.

The New York City Police Department says at least four people were taken into custody this morning, along with six others who were arrested overnight.

Police allowed protestors back into the park around 6 a.m. after ordering them to leave around midnight.
Demonstrators knocked down barricades and heckled officers by dangling a donut on a string and chanting, "Get your hand off your gun."

"Legality does not mean morality and if they want to push us out and pretend like we don't exist or they want to quiet all of our voices that's fine, but we're not gonna go anywhere and we're gonna get arrested for whatever law they legislate," said one protester.
