NEW YORK (PIX11)—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.
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.
