The original New York Times story read:
“After allowing them onto the bridge, the police cut off and arrested dozens of Occupy Wall Street Demonstrators.”

38 minutes later the wording was changed to say:
“In a tense showdown over the East River, police arrested hundreds of Occupy Wall Street demonstrators after they marched on the bridge’s Brooklyn-bound roadway.”
