'Occupy' protesters get face to face with police

TAMPA, Fla. - There were some tense moments in downtown Tampa when members of the Occupy movement came face-to-face with police.

Several dozen Occupy protesters marched up Tampa Street through downtown after gathering just outside Tampa Police headquarters.

But just minutes into their protest, officers stopped the group on their impromptu march.

The standoff lasted only a few minutes, with police clearing the street of traffic so the protesters could continue on.

No arrests were made.

But Occupy members say they are planning to have their biggest presence on the last night of the RNC.
