LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police have reopened a downtown street where hundreds of Wall Street protesters held an early morning protest.
Capt. Andy Smith says the protest was mainly peaceful but four people were arrested for failure to disperse and a few people tossed bamboo sticks and water bottles at officers. No injuries are reported.
Police are withdrawing and cars are moving as the morning commuter rush begins.
Protesters have been camping out near City Hall for nearly two months and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa had given a midnight deadline for them to leave. But protesters began flooding into the streets before the deadline and some are declaring a small victory, saying they'll remain for now.
