Things peaceful at "Occupy San Diego" protests

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - For the most part, things have been relatively peaceful this weekend at the "Occupy San Diego" protests downtown.

It's in stark contrast from what went down early Friday morning when police in riot gear took down the Occupy encampment at Civic Center Plaza. Several people were arrested during the raid.

Since then, the demonstrators have stuck around, but have been respectful of police officers patrolling the plaza.

"The folks have been overall very cooperative and we appreciate that. And we actually just look for continued support from the demonstrators who are out trying to get their message out," said Lt. Darryl Hoover of the San Diego Police Department.

The "Occupy San Diego" movement is now in its fourth week.
