Arrests in Occupy raid total 292

The breakdown is 290 booked for failure to disperse, one for battery on a police officer and one for interfering with an officer, the L.A. Times reports. Bail for most was expected to be $5,000. Mayor Villaraigosa and Chief Beck have just held a presser where they effusively praised the efficiency, professionalism and calm of the 1,400 police who were on the scene, but some protesters are reporting scattered violent incidents with cops away from the cameras at City Hall.
