Cindy Sheehan arrested at Wall Street protest in Sacramento

(Stephen Magagnini)   Anti-war mother Cindy Sheehan was arrested along with 18 other demonstrators at Cesar Chavez Park in Sacramento early Sunday, police said.

Sheehan, 53, was booked into Sacramento County Jail at 3:15 a.m. for unlawful assembly in the park and failing to follow police orders to disburse, police said. Sheehan became famous after taking a visible role in the anti-war movement following the 2004 death in Iraq of her son, Casey.

Occupy Sacramento reported there have been 58 arrests at the park at Ninth and I streets across from City Hall since the nationwide protests began Oct. 6.

On Sunday, the protesters said the 19 people arrested had been peaceful, and among those arrested were a person using a wheelchair and another doing a hunger strike. That person had to be taken to a local hospital.

All were charged with “unlawful assembly,” a misdemeanor. Unless a protester has a lengthy criminal history or has been a flight risk in the past, “they would likely be released with a court date and be required to appear in a few days,” police said.
