At least five people were arrested Tuesday after IU Police broke up a protest taking place at the Kelley School of Business in solidarity with Occupy IU and Occupy Bloomington

The protesters blocked a door, sitting cross-legged on the floor with their arms linked. Most moved when asked by police, but those who didn't were arrested.

Protesters also alleged at least two of them were assaulted by an IUPD detective in a gray suit during the incident.

"This action is an important local step in the progression of the Occupy movement and will be a visible discussion topic in the upcoming weeks," said a press notification sent earlier today.

Protesters were at Kelley because of a J.P. Morgan event in the school.

The protesters originally met at the Herman B Wells library and moved to the graduate side of Kelley.
