Police arrested three protesters Wednesday night at an Occupy Seattle demonstration targeting Chase Bank CEO Jamie Dimon.

Protesters rallied at a Chase bank on Capitol Hill Wednesday afternoonbefore they headed downtown to the Sheraton hotel, where Dimon was giving a speech.

It appears the downtown protest got a bit rowdy around 8:40 last night, and police deployed pepper spray and officers arrested one woman and two men.

According to police, officers arrested the woman for assaulting an officer, arrested one man for obstruction, and another for harassment, assaulting an officer, and property destruction. Both the men and the woman were booked into the King County Jail.

Occupy Seattle later declared "victory against Jamie Dimon & Chase Bank" on its Twitter feed and protesters returned to their camp on Capitol Hill.
