Occupy St. Louis protesters out of jail

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Occupy St. Louis says the 14 protesters arrested near the entrance to a Mississippi River bridge are out of jail.

Police made the arrests without incident late Thursday afternoon as hundreds of protesters tried to block the entrance to the Martin Luther King Bridge.

A spokeswoman for Occupy St. Louis says the women who were arrested were released around 3:30 a.m. Friday from the St. Louis Justice Center. The men were freed about 90 minutes later.

Thursday’s protest in St. Louis took place amid demonstrations nationwide marking the two-month anniversary of the movement that began with New York’s Occupy Wall Street.
