Flash: Police Detain Tree Sitter Running Wolf

Tuesday December 12, 2006

UC Berkeley Campus police detained tree-sitting former mayoral candidate Zachary Running Wolf Wednesday morning, then served him with an order barring him from campus for seven days. 

He had left the tree briefly for a meeting with Native American studies faculty when officers served him with the order. “They ordered me to stay away from campus for seven days,” he said. 

Meanwhile officers stepped up pressure at the threatened grove throughout the day, with as many as 13 police officers mustering near the grove by late afternoon.
