About 200 Occupy Wall Street protesters ran over barriers in New York's financial district and scuffled with police after learning that a planned cleanup of Zuccotti park had been postponed, The New York Post reports.

Protesters, apparently emboldened by officials backing down this morning from the cleanup eviction of their campsite at a private park -- streamed on to Broadway, blocking traffic, setting up a confrontation with police who are waiting for them on the street, the Post reports.

Things turned predictably violent with police chasing protesters and forcing everyone onto sidewalks.  One group flipped a police scooter.

Police arrested at least eight people on Beaver Street, as a throng of protesters flipped over a police scooter on Broadway.

Cuffed protesters yelled, "The whole world is watching!" Shame on you!"

Protesters from the Occupy Wall Street movement spent the night cleaning and scrubbing the park, prompting New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to postpone the cleanup.
