OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Oakland officials dismantled the floating “Aquapy Lake Merritt” raft Thursday night.

Occupy protesters launched the raft carrying a tent in Lake Merritt earlier this week.

Authorities were met with jeers by a group of activists as the raft was brought to shore.

Information regarding possible arrests was not immediately available.
