Atlanta police said one protester draped in an American flag inside Woodruff Park was arrested after refusing to leave by a Sunday night curfew, and four other people on bicycles were arrested near the park — three for traffic violations and one for obstruction of a law enforcement officer.

The 23-year-old woman in the park was warned three times in English and Spanish to leave before she was arrested, police spokesman Carlos Campos said.
At the time, dozens more demonstrators chanting slogans like “We’re hungry! We’re poor! What are you wasting our money for?” stood behind barricades surrounding the park, where police had warned they would enforce an 11 p.m. curfew.
