The younger Rodriguez, reportedly a student at Santa Monica College, helped organize trash disposal and “arrange workshops for occupiers on environmental, labor and economic issues,” his father said.

On Nov. 30, Los Angeles police moved in to clear the encampment that had occupied green space outside City Hall for almost two months. The younger Rodriguez was among 291 people arrested. He was released Friday on $5,000 bail, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
