SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities say they arrested 22 protesters after they disrupted traffic with an unannounced march through San Francisco's downtown.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/OLa3Xo ) that one police officer was slightly injured during Saturday's protest.
Police spokesman officer Gordon Shyy says trouble began around 3 p.m. when police told the marchers to disperse because they lacked a permit. He says marchers responded by tossing flares, bags of paint and other objects at the officers.
The march was halted in the Financial District and police began making arrests.
Police say some marchers face felony charges of assault on a police officer. Others were arrested for rioting, resisting arrest and failure to obey a lawful police order.
