Vandals Arrested At Olympics Protest

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Sep 30, 2009 3:00PM

Six men were arrested at the Daley Center last night after they ripped down an Olympic banner from the Picasso and tried to burn it in the "eternal flame." The group got into a "physical confrontation" with police officers who responded and all six were taken into custody. Authorities have said they believe that the six jackasses men were not part of the organized anti-Olympics rally that was held earlier in the evening - we'll have more on that later. We'd like to think that these jerkstores were just upset over Pele's dissing of Michael Jordan, They just seem like trouble-making douchebags making things harder on those that protested earlier without relegating themselves to destruction of city property.
