Occupy Boston arrests continue to mount

Via The Feral Irishman

Four Occupy Boston demonstrators were arraigned in Boston Municipal Court today following their arrests Saturday on charges ranging from disorderly conduct to stealing a police bicycle.

Langston Peace, 29, of Boston was arrested about 1:30 p.m. Saturday when he allegedly walked off with an officer’s bike during a march in Downtown Crossing. Peace was charged with larceny over $250 and is due back in court on Dec. 14.

Three other protesters — Jeffrey Nunes, 17, and Sean Cormier, 21, both of Westport; and Kiearn Lyons, 17, of Norwood — were arrested shortly after 5 p.m. during a march from the Dewey Square tent city to the Back Bay.

They allegedly broke away from the other protesters and burst into a Burger King on Boylston Street, wearing masks and frightening customers.

They were charged with disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace and are due back in court on Dec. 12.

All four were also ordered to stay away from Dewey Square.

More than 140 other demonstrators have been arrested since the encampment started more than a month ago.
