DBD 6/26: Squirtle & Friend come down

Squirtle and another tree sitter named Mathew Marks voluntarily came down from the trees Wednesday evening. 

According to Mogulof, Costello [Squirtle], 20, approached a university police officer and told the officer that he and a possible second protestor wanted to come down.

University police Chief Victoria Harrison spoke with Costello and was told he wanted to come down peacefully and also wanted a cigarette.

Marks, 24, said that he wanted to give a statement and give his bag to tree-sitter supporters down below, said Mogulof.

The two men, along with a videographer who had been documenting the tree-sitters, were escorted to the police station and gave statements, the spokesman said.

The two tree-sitters were asked about provisions of the remaining seven protesters, said Mogulof, and police were told they had adequate food and water.

According to Mogulof, Costello and Marks were both charged with trespassing and violation of a court order prohibiting people in the trees. Marks was additionally charged in violation with a previous stay-away order.

The two were taken to jail and are expected to be cited and released, said Mogulof, who added that after police watch video footage of the protestors, there could be additional charges for throwing human waste at officers.

I'm hoping the rest come down soon but...

Sinai said the tree-sitters initially refused to talk to Hynes and Dong but eventually told them that they [the rest of the tree sitters] have enough food and water "for a while."

However, the tree-sitters wouldn't reveal exactly how much food and water they have, according to Sinai.
