MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak has agreed to hold a public meeting with Occupy Minneapolis activists about the arrests of a dozen protesters over the weekend.

Rybak will meet with them at 1 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall. Occupiers say the mayor will take questions at the meeting.

The mayor agreed to the meeting after about 40 protesters marched Monday afternoon from the Hennepin County Government Center Plaza about a half-block to City Hall. After he agreed to the meeting, the protesters then dispersed.

Earlier Monday, Police Chief Timothy Dolan acknowledged one of his officers may have gone too far during Saturday's protest by knocking a television camera off the shoulder of a KSTP-TV employee.
