Naomi Wolf, the celebrated feminist author and campaigner, has been arrested at an Occupy Wall Street protest outside an awards ceremony held to honour New York's governor.
The ceremony was being used to honor New York Governor Andrew Cuomo who was receiving a “game changer of the year” award from the Huffington post, a site that Wolf contributes to.
Onlookers says Wolf was seen arguing with an NYPD officer who was ordering protesters off the street where they were blocking traffic, when she argued an onlooker says the officer told her to “tell it to the judge.”
She was detained after ignoring police warnings to stay off the street in front of the building and where a crowd of about 50 Occupy Wall Street protesters had gathered.
Wolf had been at the event, hosted by Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington and attended by a number of celebrities, including the reality TV star Kim Kardashian, who was presented with a "business leader" award.
