400+ Arrested on Brooklyn Bridge

Over 400 Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested while crossing the Brooklyn Bridge today.  The protesters say that the police coralled them onto the bridge, while the police and mainstream media report that the protesters were deliberately obstructing traffic.
