Protesters pepper-sprayed, candidate arrested at demonstration

Headline Photo

One protester was arrested and at least five were sprayed with pepper spray last night during an anti-globalization demonstration attended by several University of Arizona activists.

With guns drawn, Tucson Police Department officers arrested Daniel Patterson, Green Party candidate for the Arizona Senate, as he left the Bank One building , 2 E. Congress St., where the National Law Center is located.

After a long struggle with security guards who tried to lock out protesters, he and other protesters managed to enter the building.

Patterson was on his way out of the building when TPD officers chased him down the sidewalk, said Judy Altieri, TPD public information officer.

Officers wrestled Patterson to the ground shortly after 5 p.m. One officer attempted to handcuff him and the other tried to keep the crowd away from the officers and Patterson, Altieri said.

What's puzzling, though, is that Kappa Sigma wasn't smarter about the way it conducted the activity.
