LOS ANGELES — Former U.S. Marine Scott Olsen, whose injury during clashes between Oakland police and protesters last month galvanized the Anti-Wall Street movement, has been released from the hospital, friends said on Friday.
“He is out of the hospital as of yesterday or today, thank goodness,” Adele Carpenter, 29, told Reuters.
Iraq Veterans Against the War spokeswoman Dottie Guy also confirmed Olsen’s release to Reuters.
