Seattle police criticized for force used against crowd.

Seattle police used pepper spray to clear "Occupy" protesters from a downtown street overnight.

Several protesters were hit by pepper spray when police moved in to prevent a protest march from continuing down the middle of a downtown street.

Four protesters were arrested and several people near the demonstration were hit by pepper spray, including an elderly woman.

The protesters then continued their march downtown where they later staged a sit-in.
