ROSEVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Police in Northern California have arrested 15 people following a protest at a Walmart store.

Roseville police Sgt. Jeff Kool says the protesters were taken into custody Friday for failing to disperse when they blocked an intersection in the Placer County city.

The Sacramento Bee reports (http://bit.ly/181lXFU) that the protesters had marched about a half mile to the intersection following a demonstration at a Walmart store.

They were among a group of about 100 people protesting Walmart's wages and labor practices. Similar protests took place at Walmart stores around the country on Friday.

Walmart spokeswoman Amelia McLear told the newspaper business at the store was not affected. She called the protesters a "vocal minority."
