News Feature: Police and Protesters Clash

One hundred arrests and conflicting stories Monday night in an incident near Civic Center Park - protesters say police cordoned them off with no provocation, using tear gas and, some say, rubber bullets to get them to disperse. Police say they ordered protesters, who did not have a permit to leave and the crowd rushed the police line. KCFR's Eric Whitney reports.
