OKC Police Criticized Over Teen Curfew Arrests (Jul 20, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma City police are being criticized for arresting about 20 teenagers for curfew violations and the city's police chief acknowledges that mistakes were made.

The teenagers were arrested Saturday outside a movie theater in the Bricktown entertainment district. Some parents say the arrests came 20 minutes before the 11 p.m. curfew and that some were arrested while waiting for parents to pick them up after the movie.

The city's curfew makes an exception for those under 18 who attend a movie and are awaiting an adult.

Police Chief Bill Citty told The Oklahoman that the incident is under investigation. He said the officers conducted the sweep because of an increase in assaults in the area involving juveniles.
