Police arrest 29 Occupy Tampa protesters after asking them to vacate park 03 Dec 2011 One by one, they were handcuffed, pulled from the grass and loaded into a police van. All 29 of them. In the biggest night of arrests since the Occupy Tampa movement began three months ago, police charged demonstrators with trespassing in a public park after hours and resisting arrest without violence late Thursday. Both charges are misdemeanors. Officers also used a city ordinance to issue trespass warnings to those who were arrested. The warning is effective in all city parks.
