Friends say that Scott Olsen, the Iraq War veteran who suffered a serious head injury during a police raid on the Occupy Oakland encampment, has been released from the hospital.
Olsen suffered a skull fracture during tear-gas filled clashes between police and demonstrators on Oct. 25.
The 24-year-old Marine Corps veteran had been attending Occupy protests in San Francisco and Oakland after working his day job as a security software engineer.
Dottie Guy of Iraq Veterans Against the War said Sunday that Olsen was released last week. She says he can now read and write, but still has trouble talking.
Wall Street protesters nationwide have rallied around Olsen's plight. A second Iraq War veteran was hospitalized earlier this month after Oakland officials said he was hurt during another round of protests, but has since been released.
