I asked the NYPD for a statement and that's what they sent me.

The update I'm sending them (and the independent by extension) is
simply a short factual statement, I'm posting it here just in case
anyone has problems with it.
One person was arrested for using a loudspeaker, which the police
claims was without permission, while another one was arrested
regarding the tarps (which the NYPD claimed were tents after we were
told tarps would be fine) and was also wounded during the arrest and
needed medical attention.
