Police showed up and shouting ensued as about 500 protesters gathered for a Thanksgiving meal at the Occupy Wall Street camp in lower Manhattan.

Things heated up for about 15 minutes on Thursday afternoon when police told drummers at Zuccotti Park to stop playing.

About 200 of the protesters surrounded a group of about 30 officers and began shouting.

A van rolled up with more officers, but they hung back.

The protesters held an impromptu forum, and decided to call off the drumming.

The noisy standoff ended, and the protesters returned to their meal.
