Six protesters arrested on Bay Bridge 

Six police brutality protesters were arrested on the western span of the Bay Bridge Tuesday afternoon, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.

The protesters were reported by several callers to be blocking traffic on the eastbound lanes of the bridge at about 4 p.m., CHP Officer Vu Williams said.

CHP officers responded and immediately took the six protesters into custody. Williams said it appears they entered on the Fourth Street off-ramp from the highway.

He didn’t know if there were previously other protesters on the bridge, but said when officers arrived there were only six.

The protesters were arrested and eventually booked into county jail in San Francisco, Williams said. Protesters also occupied the Oakland City Council chambers and briefly blocked an Interstate Highway 880 on-ramp in Oakland.
