DENVER (AP) – Denver police are vowing to continue enforcing sidewalk rules following a series of arrests over the weekend.

Police arrested 17 protesters on Saturday when officers cleared the sidewalks of people who were camping out.

Three more protesters were arrested Sunday, where a Denver police officer and a Colorado State Patrol trooper suffered minor injuries in a shoving match over a table used to serve food.

According to the Denver Post, a Denver judge on Sunday increased the bail for the 17 people arrested Saturday. Occupy arrests previously carried a maximum bail of $500. On Sunday, they ranged from $750 to $1,000.
