Police say five people have been arrested after chaining themselves to a tree and refusing to leave during an Occupy Austin protest.


Police Chief Art Acevedo says a sixth person chained to the tree Thursday night agreed to leave peacefully and was not detained.


Austin officials have asked protesters to move from a public plaza several nights a week, so the area can be cleaned.


Police say several who hooked themselves to a tree declined to move around 11 p.m. Thursday and were arrested on criminal trespass charges.


No injuries have been reported.
