And it had nothing to do with the drum circle. Earlier this week, a man was arrested at Zuccotti Park for assaulting three women after he tried and failed to sell them cocaine. Yesterday, three of his friends, all of whom appeared to be 18 or so, came back to the park and allegedly threatened to kill one of the young women for getting their buddy arrested. One man was arrested on Tuesday night for witness intimidation, and police are looking for the other two. [City Room/NYT]
