New York City police once again acted aggressively towards Occupy Wall Street protesters, using pepper spray and tear gas as they made rough arrests early Tuesday morning at Zuccotti Park.

Protesters locked arms in the park and chanted “Shame on you” as police yelled “Back the fuck up” in return.

Video of the incident has been scarce, but the footage below appears to have been shot from inside the crowd as police closed in. It contains some adult language.
