It's no secret that Occupy DC protesters aren't exactly fans of Fox News. So when the protesters noticed a Fox van illegally parked on K Street Monday, they took advantage of the situation.

Several dozen protesters surrounded the empty van, which had already received a parking ticket from the city, and placed a handwritten "Citizen's Arrest" ticket on the windshield.

While three D.C. police officers monitored the situation, Occupiers chanted slogans from the sidewalk and jokingly asked police to tow the van.

Eventually a Fox employee moved the van and protesters marched back across the street.
