Christopher Bolton says protesters marched through downtown Oakland a little before 8 p.m. Saturday, with some of the protesters entering a YMCA building in the city’s downtown. The 100 arrests Saturday night come after 19 people were arrested in Occupy Oakland protests during the day making Saturday a busy day at the Oakland Police Department.

Tear gas and “flash” grenades were reported used by the police on the group of protesters Saturday afternoon after some of them threw rocks and other objects at the police and tore down fencing.
