Former Philadelphia Police Captain Arrested With Occupy Wall Street

Retired Philadelphia Police Captain Ray Lewis is that dude, and not just because he shares his name with one of the greatest Linebackers to ever play in the NFL. He gained fame among Occupy Wall Street protesters today by joining the movement and being arrested with demonstrators this morning.

Lewis can be seen in the first video holding up a sign that reads "NYPD Don't Be Wall Street Mercenaries." During this early morning interview, he suggested that the NYPD and the city of New York dropped the ball with their method of clearing Zuccotti Park. His comments made him extremely popular with protesters, and his legend was solidified when he got arrested with them this morning. Occupy Wall Street broke the news via Twitter, saying  there were "immense cheers and music" as he was taken away.

Not every cop out there is an asshole.
