MONTE RIO (CBS SF) — A 75-year-old protester was arrested at an ‘Occupy Bohemian Grove’ march in Sonoma County on Saturday, according to the sheriff’s office.
As many as 100 protesters marched from an amphitheater in the town of Monte Rio to the gates of Bohemian Grove on Bohemian Avenue at about 4 p.m., according to the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies from the sheriff’s office and officers from the California Highway Patrol responded to keep the protesters from entering the property, the sheriff’s office said.
Some protesters attempted to push through the officers at the gates.
Douglas Miller allegedly grabbed a deputy’s baton and was arrested for interfering with a peace officer in the performance of his duty.
Miller was booked at Sonoma County jail.
The remainder of the protest was relatively peaceful, the sheriff’s office said.
