ABC News' Olivia Katrandjian reports: At least 80 people were arrested on Wall Street today in the eighth day of protests against corporations, according to the group Occupy Wall St, which reported police used tasers and mace to control the crowd today. The New York Police Department could not confirm how many arrests had been made because they were still being processed, a spokesman said. A video has circulated of a police officer throwing a protestor to the ground. The reason for the violence is unknown -- the video shows the man standing in what seems to be a non-threatening manner before the attack. Another video shows police officers shoving male and female protestors off the street, and using a large orange net to move the crowd.
