Dozens of arrests so far today at a San Francisco Bank of America branch. During a march by Occupy San Francisco, at least 100 protesters decided that they would "occupy" the bank, and pitched a tent.

Around 4 p.m. PST, police moved in to arrest anyone who refused to leave. Police in riot-gear used plastic cuffs, loaded those who refused to leave into waiting buses as crowds cheered for the protesters.
