8. Ok, here is KHOU's spin on this:
And I quote:

Halliburton protesters arrested downtown; Cops injured

HOUSTON -- Houston police called for extra backup Wednesday morning after several protesters got out of hand outside the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Houston.



KHOU

Several protesters were taken into custody.

Dozens of protesters blocked the entrances to the hotel where Halliburton shareholders were holding a meeting. Police say a few others went inside the hotel and were blocking stairwells.


Fifteen people were arrested after refusing orders to get off the sidewalk and behind police barricades. Seven are charged with criminal trespassing for going inside the hotel, four are charged with assaulting police officers, three are charged with evading arrest and one is charged with assaulting a police horse.


A Houston police officer says she was hit in the face and pushed to the ground by protesters. Three other officers say they were kicked and punched during the standoff. All were treated for minor injuries.


"We respect everyone's right to demonstrate and to express their opinion in a peaceful manner," said HPD Lt. Robert Manzo. "However, one thing we will not tolerate is for anyone to break any laws while in the process of doing that."
