Occupy San Diego: Nine more arrested, one from a tree

December 6, 2011

The nine were attempting to pitch tents in the civic plaza behind City Hall, where police are enforcing a municipal code ordinance banning camping in public places. A federal judge last week rejected a request from Occupy San Diego protesters to restrain the police from enforcing the ordinance.

One of the nine had to be plucked from a tree, police said.

The San Diego  Police Department has put the cost of law enforcement related to the Occupy protest at more than $2.4 million. The figure includes salaries and overtime.
