NYPD scooter runs over Occupy Wall Street protester’s leg

A police officer apparently ran over a protester’s leg with his scooter this morning during a clash with Occupy Wall Street protesters.

The protesters, who jubilantly marched to City Hall after a planned cleanup and possible temporary eviction was postponed this morning, encountered officers along the way.

The Observer has a tough-to-watchvideoof a police scooter running over a man’s leg.

Officers rushed to help the man, whose shin was pinned under the tire.

Reports recorded 10 to 15 protesters arrested this morning. Metro is waiting to hear back from the NYPD for their official count.
