FERGUSON, MO (KMOV.com) – Police say demonstrators in Ferguson were blocking traffic, punching vehicles, and telling drivers to turn around while protesting on South Florissant Saturday afternoon.
Protests began this morning at the Farmer’s Market, but later moved to the Ferguson Police Department. Ferguson Police and St. Louis County Police officers on the scene, wearing body cameras, warned protesters that they would be arrested if they continued to block the road.
Police also say they arrested three people. Two of the arrests came after a protester claimed he was bumped by a passing vehicle, and the driver of the vehicle said the protester punched his car. Both were taken into custody. The third arrest happened when a protester ignored police and remained in the roadway.
Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said there have been about 100 protesters around the streets.
