6:00 pm
of mchelgen square. wjz has been live all evening developing on this developing story and mike hellgren has more on these arrests. >> reporter: we can tell you we believe there have been seven arrests and police have threatened to make more. they made quite a show of force. they arrested the people inside this fenced lot. they allowed several of them to go inside and waited while they built a makeshift school building in there. they're protesting a juvenile detention center. then they moved in through the back gate there and took them out one by one while the crowd here was running and several people were screaming and going around the other side. at this point, there are police in riot gear, there are thousands of police out here and it does not appear that the occupy protesters on the outside are going to be moving away any time soon. you can see a live picture so we are waiting and watching for
6:01 pm
the possibility of more arrests. >> reporter: police were waiting for more than 70 occupy baltimore demonstrators as they tried to break into a piece of state owned property that will eventually be a juvenile jail. it's a facility the group wants to stop. the police told them that staying here would be too dangerous. >> once we take these folks out, anybody else that comes through the fence, over the fence whatever through that piece of property is going to be arrested. >> we certainly don't want to make any arrests, we open that doesn't occur and we want, again we want them to be able to express their views while respecting the property rights of the state of maryland. and maintaining order and calm and that's what we're here to do. >> reporter: police are not allowing the protesters inside the lot but they are allowing them to bring in some of their materials including these tents that they're trying to bring in. it turned into a bit of chaos
6:02 pm
once the protesters marched to the scene. tensions would continue to rise. by 5:30 police started pulling people out and arresting them drawing panic from the crowd gathered here. and we want to show you more video from sky high chopper 13 as those arrests were unfolding. again seven arrests, those who were arrested did not resist. they basically were either sitting down, kind of went limp and the police just came in in groups and took them out. but if we can come back here live to the scene, you can see there are still a number of occupy demonstrators. they have a tent over there that i believe police eventually want them to remove. and there could be some more arrests or the tent could be taken down if they do not. and it's a fluid situation, i mean we've got a lot of police officers here, we have police in riot gear. we have two command posts, both state police and city police are working on this. it's clear that we do not want
6:03 pm
them to stay overnight. we will continue to keep an eye on the situation and see what unfolds at this point. these are the first arrests that we have seen during the occupy baltimore movement. reporting live in east baltimore, mike hellgren, wjz eyewitness news. thank you very much mike. occupy baltimore has remained active in several other issues. purple pride shining bright across baltimore today after the ravens great play off win at home. the victory over houston now sends the ravens to new england. wjz is your home for play off run. let's go to sports director mark viviano, he's live at the ravens practice facility where he spoke to the team today. >> reporter: the football season is such a long journey, you can't help but think back to the heat of august and training camp where the ravens first voiced their goal of reaching the super bowl.
6:04 pm
and here we are in mid-january and the ravens find themselves one step away from that ultimate prize. yet standing in their way is a team considered the ultimate opponent. the new england patriots. >> reporter: the ravens admit they didn't play great in their home play off win over houston but the defense did take advantage of a rookie qb and used three interceptions to top the texans 20-13. there's no rookie qb in new england. there's tom brady. maybe the best postseason passer in nfl history. and the ravens have immediately shifted their focus to the patriots. >> it's going to be hard and fun at the same time. somebody has to win and somebody has to lose and we both know that. we're coming and they know it. >> we have to come out, we have to control our odds. and we have to allow our first line to eat. go after him, he's a big target back there but he's a target
6:05 pm
that throws at targets. we have to be ready to play. >> if they don't play their best game they're going to get beat, if we don't play our best game we're going to get beat. there's no more david versus goliath, we're right up there with them. >> they have weapons everywhere. it starts with the quarterback and grunts to the tight ends. they can run the ball, they can play down field, this is the most explosive offense in football right now. that's the challenge that we face. playing on the road in the play offs is always a challenge but it's something the ravens are recent experience with. coming up, more from the coach on that subject. the las vegas odds, they have set new england as 7-1/2 favorites. the second time the ravens were
6:06 pm

6:07 pm
owners moving when things would be a little slow after the holidays. superior tours are already booking up tours including tickets to the big game. other fans are finding their own way to foxboro. >> we have 90-dollar round tour. >> reporter: nelson cone planning on spending a pretty penny. >> if you're a fan of the team, if you have the means to follow them and show your enthusiasm. this is the kind of thins you do. >> the prices are some what moderate early. >> reporter: you can get a seat at foxboro starting at $250 skyrocketing to $250 for an impressive view. >> with the magnitude of this game that's really not that bad. >> reporter: but most baltimore fans will have their own front row seat watching their own battle on wjz. as they wait many are talking up a big game against the pats. it's going to be a close call but the ravens are going to take it.
6:08 pm
a lot of ravens fans note this weekend's game is not going to be a walk in the park. but that hasn't stopped some of them from walking a close tame. even i tell my friends and family in new england, the ravens are wicked awesome. >> wicked awesome, is that a phrase you use in new england. >> it's very new england. a body was discovered this morning near annapolis. it happened along chesapeake harbor drive. chopper13 was south of annapolis, an autopsy will now be performed to find out how the person died. police said they found no identification on the body. >> reporter: police are hoping

6:12 pm
stress that. but when it initially starts in some of those colder areas north and west of the city it may start as a little bit of sleet before changing into rain. this is why it's going to change over to rain. because there's a really warm push of rain coming with this. we're going up into the 50s tomorrow afternoon. that's why we're talking about rain. initially in a few areas it could start as a mix. it will start over to rain. >> thanks so much. thousands of people took to the streets of baltimore for the city's martin luther king jr. parade. good evening everyone, the streets of downtown were packed with people as more than 50 local organizations participated in today's parade. through music and dance, the city of baltimore celebrateed the life and legacy of dr. martin luther king jr. >> it gives me a feeling of assurance and a feeling of
