CINCINNATI (AP) - For a second night, Cincinnati protesters in the Occupy Wall Street movement have accepted citations and fines rather than leave a downtown park.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that about two dozen Occupy Cincinnati demonstrators lined up late Monday at Piatt Park to receive tickets from police.
Citations that come with $105 fines were given to roughly the same number Sunday night.
The park closes at 10 p.m., and the city requires a permit to stay beyond that time. The protesters have asked to be allowed to stay around the clock until the end of the year, but parks Director Willie Carden says the city won't issue that type of permit.
Attorneys counseling the protesters say they don't expect anyone to be arrested or evicted from the park.
