Photos: Hundreds Arrested in Bloody Occupy Wall Street Protest

| by Mark Berman Opposing Views

Thousands of Occupy Wall Street protesters took to the streets of New York City on Thursday to mark the two-month anniversary of the movement which has spread worldwide.

Protesters clashed with police resulting in more than 400 arrests according to CBS News. They clogged traffic on city streets and the Brooklyn Bridge as well as knocking down police barricades designed to control the crowd.

And in what will likely be the iconic image of the protest, Brendan Watts emerged with a  bloody face from his scuffle.

A man who identifed himself as Brendan Watts is seen with blood on his face while surrounded by three police officers in Zuccotti Park on November 17, 2011 in New York City.
