HOUSTON – Houston police arrested three Occupy the Fed demonstrators after finding a statue at Eleanor Tinsley Park defaced with chalk.

Another protester said he doesn’t even know two of the people who were arrested, and said what they are accused of doing doesn’t reflect the group’s message. 

“When I came back, two other people were here and the statue was graffitized,” said Micah Jackson. “Part of me is like, ‘Oh my God, did you come down here to sabotage us or what? --Because none of that serves our purpose.”
