ST. LOUIS — Nearly a dozen demonstrators with the group OccupySTL have been released from jail after being arrested in a downtown St. Louis park.
Police arrested the protesters early Thursday for curfew violations after they ignored warnings to vacate the park by 10 p.m. Wednesday.
All of the protesters were freed by late Thursday afternoon.
A police spokeswoman said 10 people were arrested. But Colleen Kelly of OccupySTL put the number at 11, saying a homeless person who supports the movement was also arrested.
OccupySTL has conducted several demonstrations outside financial institutions in St. Louis in support of the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York.
