Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan was one of 19 demonstrators arrested during an Occupy Wall Street protest in Sacramento early Sunday.
Police told The Sacramento Bee that the 53-year-old Sheehan was booked into Sacramento County Jail around 3:15 a.m. on suspicion of unlawful assembly and failing to follow police orders to disburse.
Police spokeswoman Laura Peck says the 18 other demonstrators were also arrested for unlawful assembly.Peck says because the charge is a misdemeanor, those arrested would likely be released and ordered to appear in court within a few days.

The Bee reports that there have been 58 arrests at the park across from City Hall where protesters have been gathering since Oct. 6.
