10 arrested as police move in on 'Occupy Davis'
DAVIS, Calif. -- Police at the University of California, Davis have dismantled an Occupy encampment on campus and arrested 10 protesters.
UC Davis officials say eight men and two women were taken into custody Friday afternoon. Nine of them were students.
Student activists pitched more than a dozen tents on the UC Davis Quad on Thursday in defiance of a campus ban on camping.
Graduate student A.J. Morgan says dozens of police officers in riot gear used pepper spray on students who tried to protect the "Occupy UC Davis" camp.
Morgan says several hundred students protested Friday's police action, shouting "Shame on you! Shame on you!"
In Los Angeles, police broke up an "Occupy UCLA" encampment on campus and arrested 14 protesters Friday morning.
