Police in Los Angeles proclaimed a successful and peaceful removal of the two-month-old Occupy LA encampment at city hall during a press conference on Wednesday morning.

“The world was watching… and what the world saw was an elegant operational plan that was brilliantly executed by America’s finest police force,” said Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck.

NBC Los Angeles reports that there were at least 290 arrests in the overnight operation ending around 5 a.m. PT. The final holdouts at the encampment — a dog and three people in a tree house — were removed by officers using a Bomb Assault Tactical Control Assessment Tool — basically a souped-up forklift.
