Ferguson Police Arrest Two Protesters Overnight
FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Two protesters are facing charges after being arrested during a nighttime protest outside police headquarters in Ferguson, Missouri.
St. Louis County police say both men were arrested Saturday night. A 44-year-old man from Kansas City, Missouri, is charged with interfering with an officer. A 33-year-old man from the St. Louis suburb of St. John is accused of first-degree tampering, resisting arrest and interfering with an officer.
More than 100 protesters were part of the demonstration, but they were outnumbered by police. One protester burned an American flag.
The protesters are angry about Monday's grand jury decision not to charge Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
