From the article:
blocking the street with traffic cones/barrels and “road closed” signs1
being in a restricted construction zone (the sidewalk referenced)? I’m not clear on whether this is a closed sidewalk or they mean it’s a path marked out with barriers because the “real” sidewalk is closed.
From the video:

No idea why she was arrested. Police attempt to arrest large woman, who actively resists by pulling back and trying to lay on the ground as police have a hold of her arms. As she is being led away she tries to lay down again, or possibly just stumbles and goes with it. Technically she is dragged a bit ; but, it’s misleading to put it that way.
Person “body slammed” looks like he was with the woman (above.) He starts fighting with one of the cops when they start to arrest her, the cop throws both himself and the man onto the ground, the man continues to fight, other cops pull him off.
1Hint: If you block a road, and then the police come and clear it and hang out for a bit, and then the police leave, they are watching watching to see if you do it again so they can catch you doing it and arrest you.
