Occupy Denver: Stephen Liddane arrested for occupying an igloo after hours

Let's recap: By this point, It has been firmly established that Mayor Michael Hancock, the Denver Police Department, Governor John Hickenlooper and the Colorado State Patrol have no intention of allowing Occupy Denver to use tents. Such encampments have been referred to as a "shantytown" by police, even though tents might have prevented five hospitalizations. One possible solution, then, is an igloo -- or at least that's what Stephen Liddane thought until he was arrested inside of one.
