Occupy protesters from last week's protest indicted

HOUSTON

A grand jury indicted seven people on charges of manufacturing of a criminal instrument. The charge stems from protesters using a PVC pipe to attach themselves.

A judge last week tossed out the similar charges filed against the same seven defendants and an eighth person.

Twelve other protesters face different charges in connection with the port protest.
