Occupy Protester arrested in Wilmington

WILMINGTON NC (WWAY) — Occupy Wilmington protesters have been getting a lot of attention but not the type they wanted.

The group who is protesting Wall Street greed as well as local issues was one member less after an arrest Sunday night.

Wilmington police ordered protesters off the City Hall lawn and Shelby Lentz was arrested. We caught up with him Monday night at his apartment near UNC-W

Shelby explained, “They threatened to arrest anyone who did not leave and I was the one who was vocal with my opinion and ask everyone are we going to walk away, that’s when they were not happy with me any longer and I continued to ask them questions in a respectful manner and they still wanted to escalate the situation to an arrest.”

Protesters were out in small numbers and have moved to the top of the city hall steps, they hope to avoid police attention but feel they will be noticed at this location.

Shelby wants his voice to be heard and it will be, in court January 11th.
