Citibank Customers Arrested for Closing Accounts in Protest

Citibank customers were arrested moments ago at Citibank, 555 LaGuardia, NYC. This is via the Occupy Wall Street NYC live feed.

Some 20 protesters were locked inside the bank after attempting to leave the bank per Citibank officials' request. A number of the protesters, or all, (this is a developing story) attempted to close their Citibank accounts. At least 2 of the Citibank customers who closed (or attempted to close) their accounts managed to leave the bank but were forced back inside by Citibank security. They were then locked inside and subsequently arrested. Welcome to America folks.
