TUCSON -- (Nov. 27, 2011) From 10:40pm, Saturday night to 12:10am, Sunday morning, Tucson Police Department cited and released demonstrators of Occupy Tucson for staying in the park after hours, except for four who were taken into custody.
Michael (Mike) Migliore was taken into custody after chaining himself onto one of the poles at Veinte de Agosto Park in making a stance for his First Amendment right.  Tucson police handcuffed Migliore and then proceeded to cut the chains, and escorted him to a police cruiser, where he was led away.
Mary DeCamp was taken into custody for the second time in three nights as she refused her citation.  DeCamp was walked from her tent to a general area, where occupiers were being cited.  DeCamp was then taken to another police cruiser where she was handcuffed, seated and then led away.
William (Billy) Lolos, who also refused his citation, was also taken into custody as he was handcuffed before taken to the general area.  Lolos was then taken to yet another police cruiser and seated, and led away.
One unidentified male was also handcuffed and taken into custody, and was seated in the same police cruiser as Lolos.
All four were peacefully taken into custody without incident as fellow occupiers and supporters gave encouragement to those taken into custody for the third night in a row.
