Late blues great Bo Diddley's son has been arrested in the Florida park that bears his father's name for his part in an Occupy Wall Street-inspired protest.
Ellas Anthony MCDaniel and three other activists were arrested on Thursday (13Oct11) at the Bo Diddley Community Plaza in Gainesville for refusing to leave the park at the request of police.
Diddley's angry son said, "This is my father's park. For them to arrest me in that plaza is ludicrous... This is freedom of assembly. I feel like a number of my rights have been violated."
The Occupy Gainesville protest is one of many that has sprung up across America in the past week. The New York protest, Occupy Wall Street, began four weeks ago.
