Occupy Wall Street: video of NYPD arresting a girl in an awesome green GIR hat

This video from the #OccupyWallStreet livestream on Saturday shows what is being widely reported as a "13-year-old girl" being arrested by the NYPD on the Brooklyn Bridge, in full restraints, and an awesome GIR hat (character from Invader Zim). I am trying to confirm her identity and age with NYPD and eyewitness sources, along with the circumstances of her arrest. [Video Link] (via @somebadideas)

Update: Here's a related thread on Reddit. And people in this thread on Gothamist have identified her as a user on Deviantart. Boing Boing reader Jim Saul adds, "Dunno if either of these are legit, but here are two reddit users claiming to know her: omgimsuchadork, and esmereina." And reader @ericjaffa points to a related Crooks and Liars thread, in which people are saying she's 18.
