Councilman Jumaane Williams Placed In Custody During OWS Rally; Tweets About Arrest
A New York City councilman who made headlines in September after he was arrested while on his way to an event following the West Indian Day Parade, has been arrested at a massive Occupy Wall Street rally near the Brooklyn Bridge.

Brooklyn City Council Member Jumaane Williams confirmed on Twitter that he was placed into police custody sometime after 6 p.m. Thursday.

"I have just been #handcuffed & #arrested by the #NYPD, practicing #civildisobedience with #OccupyWallStreet & the #99percent," Williams tweeted.

Aside from the tweet, Williams' office did not immediately release a statement about the arrest.

Williams and Kirsten John Foy, an aide for Public Advocate Bill de Blasio's office were arrested on Sept. 5 as they approached a parade-related event at the Brooklyn Museum. The duo was said to have entered a secure police zone and were handcuffed and detained until they could be identified. No charges were filed.
