Occupy Fresno arrests continue through weekend

FRESNO, Calif.

Six people were arrested early Monday morning at Courthouse Park.

Fresno County deputies have been arresting protestors each night over the past week.

"I just think this is very important and we're not going anywhere. We're going to be here," demonstrator Georgia Williams said.

There was one confrontation between an Occupy Fresno protestor and deputies.

Occupiers say the protester was unfairly tackled by deputies, but the Sheriff's Department says the man was being uncooperative so deputies wrestled him to the ground and handcuffed him.
