Woman Arrested at Wall Street Pillow Fight

Growing up, the unspoken rule of a good pillow fight was to never hit the authority figure who eventually came in to break it up. That basic law of the land still holds true today, as pillow fighters witnessed this past Saturday (photos). 

One girl was arrested at the fight on Wall Street for allegedly hitting a police officer with a pillow.  Aside from that one arrest, over 1,000 other pillow fighers dispersed at the will of the NYPD, chanting "Hell no, we won't go!" as they went.  

Saturday's pillow fight was the fourth annual Pillow Fight Day, and coincided with 109 other cities, per the Daily News.  According to one blogger, two girls in Chicago were arrested by cops who were heard lambasting the pillow fighters for "wasting taxpayers' money."  And in Detroit, police "ruffled some feathers" at the pillow fight in a downtown park.

The video embedded below shows footage of the unlucky girl's arrest and subsequent police response to break up the crowds.  Click play, but watch out for feathers.  They're everywhere.
