Arrested Prop. 8 protester blogs about it

The two anti-Proposition 8 demonstrators arrested in Westwood yesterday are employees of Buzznet.com. One of them, Mark Oshiro, blogs about his experience while in LAPD custody and his befuddlement at the whole thing — he was eventually bailed out without anyone officially talking to him — but may face a charge of battery on a police officer. This video shows the incident and it's not real clear what happened, but you do see an officer shove one of the protesters to the ground.
