OAKLAND, Calif. - A crowd of protesters in Oakland, Calif., that had gathered in front of City Hall amid a heavy police presence has scattered as authorities have fired tear gas in response to rock throwing from some of the demonstrators.

The police action is the second such incident in as many hours. Officers in riot gear briefly dispersed a crowd heading back toward the downtown area where an Occupy Wall Street encampment was dismantled earlier in the day.

Authorities are denying reports that they used flash bang canisters to help break up the crowd, saying the loud noises came from large firecrackers thrown at police by protesters.

The Tuesday evening skirmishes come after police removed about 170 demonstrators who had been staying overnight on a plaza outside City Hall for more than two weeks. City officials say 85 people were arrested in the morning raid.
