There was some confusion Tuesday when some of Lexington's occupy protestors went to the state capitol for a redistricting protest.

They say that's why the camp on Main Street was briefly unoccupied when police showed up.

Police said they thought the protestors had left for good, so they started cleaning up.

Meanwhile some of the protestors returned to the site.

Police said that the camp had gotten dirty and protestors will no longer be allowed to have tents or tables at the site, and they can't block the sidewalk.

According to police, someone had also written obscenities on the sidewalk and they had to clean that up as well.

No one was cited.

Looking ahead, protestors plan to continue their movement, now at 118 days and counting.
