Stacey Hessler was arrested yesterday for blocking traffic in the middle of Broadway. She kept screaming, “What did I do?” as cops dragged her away.
The New York Post reported:

Here’s your mom, kids. Proud?

The hippie Florida mother of four who ditched her children and banker husband to sleep in Zuccotti Park’s squalor hit rock bottom yesterday when she was hauled off in handcuffs, her dreadlocks flying wildly in every direction, for blocking a street near the New York Stock Exchange.

Stacey Hessler, 38, was lifted off the pavement in the center of Broad Street by three cops who slapped plastic bracelets on her wrists and dragged her away kicking and screaming.

“What did I do? What did I do?” she kept shouting.

She was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct after she blocked “vehicular and pedestrian traffic” and refused orders to move, cops said.

Hessler was dumped onto a bus with other ranting and bedraggled demonstrators for a short ride to One Police Plaza for booking.

The unemployed Long Island native and self-described “vegan freak” — who said she was into “unschooling” her children — had been a fixture at the protest camp since she abandoned her home in Deland and her kids, ages 7 to 17.

“I’m not planning on going home,’’ the wayward flower child had told The Post about two weeks after she joined the rabble at Zuccotti Park.

“I have no idea what the future holds, but I’m here indefinitely. Forever.”
