On the second day of the Olympics in Vancouver, protesters flooded downtown streets and smashed windows. Police later dispersed the crowd and arrested several suspects with mischief charges.

Vancouver, Canada - As many protest groups warned earlier in the month, anti-Olympics organizations clogged the streets of Vancouver as the 2010 Games began on Saturday. Protesters brought a "circus-like atmosphere" to the city for the first part of the morning, but then some more violent protesters began smashing windows and spray-painting retail outlets.

According to the CBC, these protesters - some dressed in black balaclavas and masks - smashed "up to three windows at the Hudson's Bay store and one at the Toronto-Dominion Bank near the intersection of Granville and West Georgia streets."

Some estimates put the number of demonstrators at 200.

Before the crowd could wind its way to some of the more popular hotels in the area, Vancouver Police dispersed the protesters with tear gas. Police forced the large contingent to break up into smaller groups, and the clash was then over.

Police told CBC seven suspects were arrested, including one person with a bicycle chain wrapped around his fist. Charges of mischief were pending. They also claimed to have seized a bag containing a hammer.
