Police in riot gear moved in to New York’s Zuccotti Park early Tuesday morning, evicting hundreds of protesters from the site where the now-global Occupy movement began.

Police arrested more than 100 people, according to Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Browne. New York City Council member Ydanis Rodriguez was among those arrested, his spokesman, David Segal, told CNN.

Medical crews treated three people for minor injuries, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. A police officer was also hospitalized after experiencing heart palpitations, he said.
